TEST TRACK INVESTIGATION ON RESISTANCE TO ABRASION OF CONCRETE PAVEMENT UNDER SIMULATED IRON-TIRED TRAFFIC

RESULTS OF INVESTIGATION HAVE BEEN REPORTED ON RESISTANCE TO ABRASION OF PAVING CONCRETE OF DIFFERENT SPECIFICATIONS LAID ON A FULL SCALE TEST TRACK, SUBJECTED TO THE SIMULATED CONDITION OF BULLOCK CART TRAFFIC IN THE COUNTRY. THE TEST TRACK FINDINGS ON ABRASION HAVE BEEN CORRELATED TO ABRASION LOSS OBTAINED IN THE LABORATORY THROUGH C.R.R.I. PNEUMATIC SAND BLASTING CABINET AND COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH ON TEST SAMPLES PERTAINING TO DIFFERENT SPECIFICATIONS. THESE HAVE, THEREFORE, BEEN UTILIZED TO OBTAIN RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LABORATORY VALUES OF COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH AND ABRASION LOSS AND THE EXPECTED WEAR IN THE FIELD FOR ANY DESIRED NUMBER OF REPETITIONS OF IRON-TIRED TRAFFIC. BASED ON THESE, SOME SUGGESTIONS HAVE BEEN MADE ABOUT THE PERMISSIBLE ABRASION ON CONCRETE PAVEMENTS UNDER IRON-TIRED TRAFFIC AND POSSIBLE CHANGES IN THE PRESENT PRACTICE OF CONCRETE MIX DESIGN TO OBTAIN A PAVEMENT OF DESIRED ABRASION-RESISTANT PROPERTY. /A/RRL/
