Performance of full scale test roads : Final report Said, Safwat F ; Johansson, Svante ; Russiani, Marco

By: Said, Safwat FContributor(s): Johansson, Svante | Russiani, MarcoPublication details: Linköping Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut, 2002; Reinforcement of Flexible Road Structures, ; with Steel Fabrics to Prolong Service Life, ; REFLEX report T6:03, Description: 32 sSubject(s): Flexible pavement | | Steel | Mesh | Experimental road | Measurement | In situ | Bearing capacity | Deflectograph | Cracking | Longitudinal profile | Transverse profile | Frost | Sweden | 32 | 54Online resources: Publikation/Publication Abstract: This report is the third technical report of Task 6 "Construction of Test Roads" in the EU REFLEX project. REFLEX is the acronym for "Reinforcement of Flexible Road Structures with Steel Fabrics to Prolong Service Life". The main objective of REFLEX is to develop a new technology for road construction and rehabilitation. The idea is to use steel fabric reinforcement in asphalt roads in order to make road structures more cost effective by improving the lifetime of new constructed roads and by developing an optimal rehabilitation method for existing roads. Objectives of Task 6, "Construction of Test Roads" is to verify the behaviour of reinforced roads during actual traffic conditions. The first report covers the planning, design and construction of full-scale test roads investigated within Task 6. The second report covers the performance of test roads as well as design and constructions of new test roads. This report covers the following up of the performance of the test roads AND conclusions so far as well as design and construction of test road in Germany. Three test roads were built in Sweden and one in Italy in 1999. One of the test roads built in Sweden is instrumented with strain gauges. A test road is also constructed in Germany during the year 2001.
