Correlation Between Research and Construction of Concrete Roads

Paper by EISENMANN from ISCR 6th 1990

During the past two decades, the practice-oriented research work done when concrete roads are built has lead to further development of slab construc-tion, to new solutions to individual constructio-nal problems, and to development of new cons-tructional methods. Based on existing research re-sults, more reliable statements can be made on thedegree long-time performance is influenced by va-rious factors. In the near future, more attentionmust be paid to the development of axleloads andwheel positions, which will make it necessary toincrease slab thickness in time.
