The Proposed European Standard for Concrete Pavements

Paper by JOFRE VAQUERO CHARONNAT BERGMANN HALLBERG LILES from ISCR 8th 1998 Lisbon Portugal

This paper describes the present situation of the European Standards for Concrete Pavements. They are currently in prcparation by a Working Group created within the framework of Technical Committee CEN TC 227 "Road materials". Since many of the specifications for concrete and its constituents (cement, water, aggregates, admixtures) are covered by other CEN Technical Committees, it was decided to draw up a General Standard whcrc the particular exigencies of materials for concrete pavements would be included, as well as the functional requirements of the constructed pavement. In addition, a set of standards for joint fillers and sealants is also being written.
