Utra-Thin Whitetopping Applications in Mexico

Paper by SALCEDO from ISCR 8th 1998 Lisbon Portugal

Since 1993, tliiee experimcntal test sections have been built in Mexico to study the performance of Ultra-thin Whitetopping (UTW) under different traffic conditions. In this paper, the construction, instrumentation and load testing of an UTW test section built on a major highway is described. Based on the experimental results, UTW can be considered a promising rehabilitation procedure to upgrade major highways with varying degrees of surface deterioration
