TESTING AND CLASSIFICATION OF FABRICS FOR APPLICATION IN ROAD CONSTRUCTIONS

The Norwegian Road Research Laboratory has employed two simple test methods to obtain the mechanical strength of different fabrics. A CBR testing machine has been used as a two-dimensional tensile strength test. The cone penetration test is a very simple test to simulate sharp edged stones being dropped on the fabric. These testing methods are not ideal, but the results are used to compare the strength of the fabrics. Mainly based upon the two testing methods mentioned, a classification system has been set up, which takes into consideration the different fields of application. /TRRL/
