Experiments with Concrete Pavements on the LCPC Fatigue Test Track

Paper by NISSOUX CORTÉ DARBOIS DUCHAILLUT from ISCR 7th 1994 Vienna Austria

In France, the Highway Department, the concrete pavement contracting companies and the lime and cement industries represented by their national associations, initiated in 1991 a major experiment on the pavement fatigue test track of the Laboratoire Central des Ponts et Chaussées (LCPC). The objective of these full-scale tests was to check the soundness of the designs proposed in the catalogue for concrete pavements. First analysis show that the behaviour of the two rings is similar to that described in the dimensioning method, except for structures with no foundation.
