The Use of 130 MPa Concrete in the Rehabilitation of an Old Pavement

Paper by HEUAND from ISCR 6th 1990

lIn Norway, most every car is equipped with tires having small steel studs to improve the friction between the tire and road during the winter season. These studded tires have an enormous wearing effect on ordinary asphalt pavement. <\ To improve the abrasion resistance, ~ started to apply high quality concrete instead of asphalt. However, also concrete pavements need maintenance and repair. This paper will describe a projectjperformed by the company SELMER-FURUHOLMEN a.s. the last yearf'Where ;:ê dicJ.tak6.advantage of a high strength concrete of 130 MPa in the rehabilitation of an 7 year old grade 55 MPa highway pavement.
