Design and Construction of Concrete Road Surfaces in Germany

Paper by GRUNING from ISCR 7th 1994 Vienna Austria

Increasing traffic loads and new environmental criteria have led to more stringent requirements for the surfacing of roads. At the same time, practical experience and new methods have improved the construction of concrete road surfaces. In the light of these developments, it was also necessary to adapt the German technical instructions and directives for the construction of concrete road surfaces. The paper summarizes the regulations and specifications for the structural design and construction and gives a survey of the current principles of concrete road euuistiuction in Germany.
