FORMULAS FOR BITUMINOUS BRIDGE SURFACINGS IN GERMANY /IN GERMAN/

THE REQUIREMENTS FOR BRIDGE SURFACINGS ARE ENUMERATED. THE ELEMENTS AND PRINCIPLES OF CONSTRUCTION OF THE BITUMINOUS BRIDGE SURFACINGS USED IN GERMANY ARE DISCUSSED. STANDARD SOLUTIONS APPEAR TO BE AS FOLLOWS. ON CONCRETE BRIDGES, THE CONSTRUCTION METHOD CONSISTS OF THREE PARTS: INSULATION (FIRMLY BONDED TO THE STEEL PLATE), PROTECTIVE LAYER, AND SURFACING. FOR THE INSULATION THE PREFERRED MATERIALS ARE MASTICS OR METAL FOIL, FOR THE PROTECTIVE LAYER MASTIC ASPHALT IS GENERALLY USED AND FOR THE SURFACING THE USUAL WEARING COURSES ARE USED FOR BITUMINOUS ROAD SURFACES. NEW DEVELOPMENTS MENTIONED ARE A MODE OF CONSTRUCTION WITH BONDING TO CONCRETE BRIDGES AND A PURELY MASTIC METHOD FOR STEEL BRIDGES. PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE HAS SHOWN THAT THE CONDITION OF THE SURFACE, THE DERUSTING OR CLEANING OF THE BRIDGE PLATE, AND WEATHERING DURING CONSTRUCTION ARE VERY IMPORTANT. /FG/RRL/
