FLEXIBLE COVERING OF CONCRETE PAVING, SOME RESEARCH ON TEMPERATURE CHANGES

INVESTIGATIONS BY THE CENTRAL ROAD RESEARCH INSTITUTE, NEW DELHI, INDICATED THAT THERE IS A PROGRESSIVE DECREASE IN THE SURFACE TEMPERATURE AND MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE DIFFERENTIALS OF CONCRETE PAVEMENT SLABS AS THE THICKNESS OF THE BITUMINOUS WEARING COURSE INCREASES BEYOND 1 IN. SLAB THICKNESS CAN BE REDUCED BY 17 PER CENT IF A 1/2-IN WHITE BITUMINOUS SURFACING IS USED. /RRL/
