THE EVALUATION OF INTERLOCKING BLOCK PAVEMENTS - AN INTERIM REPORT

This paper reports the results obtained in an experimental study of the effects of accelerated trafficking on interlocking concrete block pavements. The tests were conducted in a road simulator in which full scale block pavements were installed using normal construction techniques. The factors studied included the effects of block, sand and base-course thicknesses, the influence of simulated tyre pressure and the effects of accelerated trafficking. The pavement response was assessed in terms of rutting deformations, transient or resilient deformations and the distributions of vertical stress within the pavement. The paper was presented at the Concrete Masonry Association Annual Conference, Sydney, 1978. /TRRL/
