STRENGTHENING OF CONCRETE PAVEMENTS

REFUERZOS DE PAVIMENTOS DE HORMIGON

The author presents a critical study of the criteria and recommendations put forward by US Army engineers and the Portland Cement Association for various cases of strengthening of highway and runway surfacings: (1) rigid strengthening of rigid surfacings, according to the partial or non-existing adhesion between the existing pavement and strengthening layer; (2) rigid strengthening of flexible pavements with or without a concrete roadbase in the existing pavement; (3) non-rigid strengthening of a flexible pavement (completely bituminous strengthening and flexible strengthening). Design methods are given for each technique together with guidelines for the construction of expansion and contraction joints and dowels in case of widening during strengthening. /TRRL/
