Thin White Topping in Vienna

Paper by STEIGENBERGER from ISCR 8th 1998 Lisbon Portugal

Conventional maintenance of rutted asphalt roads means resurfacing in short intervals or substitution of thick layers. Therefore, a new repair method was tested: Milling the top of the existing asphalt pavement, cleaning the surface and plaeing a dan layci of high performance concrete. The behaviour of the composite structure was tested both in the laboratory and in the field. In summer 1995 the approach to a weigh-bridge was topped with 10 cm of high-performance concrete withjoints every 1,2 m, opened to traffic 2 '/2 days after placing, is used by 200 heavy luilies dii1y and is performing excellently.
