PREFABRICATION IN CARRIAGEWAY CONSTRUCTION /IN GERMAN/

FOR TEN YEARS PREFABRICATED SLABS HAVE BEEN USED FOR THE REPAIR OF MOTORWAYS; THEY SHORTEN THE ROAD CLOSURE TIMES, ARE ECONOMIC AND CAN BE USED PRACTICALLY WITHOUT LIMITATION. AT PRESENT SLABS OF 9.99 X 3.74 M. IN SIZE AND 18 CM. THICK WITH PRESTRESSED LONGITUDINAL AND TRANSVERSE REINFORCEMENT ARE MOSTLY USED; THEY ARE PLACED ON A BITUMINOUS SUB-STRUCTURE, PRESSED DOWN WITH CEMENT MORTAR TO THE DESIRED HEIGHT AND CONNECTED WITH SCREW DOWELS. ON THE BASIS OF RECENT TESTS LONGITUDINAL AND TRANSVERSE PRESTRESSED SLABS, JOINED WITH CEMENT OR PLASTIC MORTARS AND LAID ON A REINFORCED BASE ARE NOW PROPOSED. /FG/RRL/
