DRAINAGE BITUMINOUS MIXTURES FOR ROAD CONSTRUCTION - ADVANTAGES AND LIMITS OF THE TECHNIQUE

LES ENROBES DRAINANTS A USAGE ROUTIER - INTERETS ET LIMITES DU PROCEDE

Open-graded bituminous mixtures for wearing courses (called either pervious bitumen macadam; open friction course, drainage asphalt) are being developed in many countries, especially in the United Kingdom and Scandinavian countries. The interest of these types of surfacing resides in the increased safety of the driver, drainage mixes markedly reducing spray, thus improving visibility in the rain, and aquaplaning risk. This article reviews experiments performed in a number of countries and studies the possibility of using some of the techniques to solve problems relating to road maintenance in France. /TRRL/
