Laboratory studies on asphalt-steel net compound system and unbound granular material-steel net compound system : Final report Salmenkaita, Seppo et al ; Said, Safwat F

By: Contributor(s): Publication details: Linköping Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut, 2002; Reinforcement of Flexible Road Structures, ; with Steel Fabrics to Prolong Service Life, ; REFLEX report T3:02, Description: 129 sSubject(s): Online resources: Abstract: In many countries premature break down of especially low volume asphalt roads is an accelerating problem. The origin is usually increasing traffic, higher axle loads and an increasing use of super single tires, but also cracking caused by thermal movements. The resources for maintenance works are limited and not sufficient to keep the roads in a proper condition. Much work therefore is needed to accomplish new cost effective maintenance methods. This project faces the problem of transport system efficiency, developing a new and global methodology of road construction and rehabilitation with the use of steel reinforcement fabrics. The following report is the final report of Task 3 "Basic research, compound system" in the EU REFLEX project. REFLEX is the acronym for "Reinforcement of Flexible Road Structures with Steel Fabrics to Prolong Service Life". This report covers the main results of the laboratory research program carried out in Task 3. Some basic properties concerning the co-operation of steel bars and asphalt concrete were carried out, and also reported, in Task 2, Product Development.
