THE INFLUENCE OF ADHESION OF BITUMINOUS ROADBASES ON BEARING CAPACITY

BAERIGHETENS BEROENDE AV ASFALTBELAEGGNINGENS VIDHAEFTNINGSEGENSKAPER

With the object of finding whether "stripping" is a problem of common occurrence in bituminous pavements, the tensile strength of stratified cores was studied. The occurrence of "stripping" could be confirmed visually when the inside of the pavement was exposed. The results of measurements according to the "split cylinder method" on the stratified cores confirmed the visual impression. It was evident from the test results that the drainage properties of the subsoil affected the degree of reduction in tensile strength. On a free-draining material such as gravel the tensile strengths obtained were thus higher than on a non-draining material like clay. The results also indicated that the distance from the non-draining/draining subsoil had an indirect effect on the tensile strenght. /TRRL/
