A Study of Ground Performance for Rigid Pavement Design: Pacific Highway Upgrade at the Warrell Creek Floodplain

Highways Members Only

The alignment of the proposed Pacific Highway upgrade between Warrell Creek to Nambucca Heads traverses five (5) major floodplain areas underlain by deep soft alluvium sediments. The low bearing capacity and high compressibility of foundation soils were found to attract significant ground settlements, with differential settlements to adversely impact the...

SRAs have been used in concrete in Australia since their introduction into the marketplace in the mid1990s. However, its recent application in a major road project in NSW has generated interest from Government bodies, engineers and contractors within this sector of the construction industry. The author therefore wishes to discuss...

Performance of Silicone Sealants in Sawn Joints

Highways Members Only

Concrete pavement joints are required to be sealed to prevent the ingress of debris, mainly incompressible and water. In the year of 2012, there are a number of reports of pavement joint sealants losing adhesion within the first 5 years of service and eventually being mostly depressed under the wheel...

The Performance of Low Noise Diamond Grinding (LNDG)

Highways Members Only

Conventional diamond grinding has been used in Australia since 2010. The purpose of diamond grinding is to improve ride quality and shape, reinstate service texture and reinstate skid resistance. This presentation reports on trials of low noise diamond grinding in NSW, Australia with analysis of performance monitoring results and comparison...

RONDA – Pavement Noise Measurements on Concrete Roads

Highways Members Only

Road traffic noise affects approximately 8 million people in Australia with 2 million seriously affected, far more than from other forms of transportation. As the principal source of road noise is from the tyre/pavement interface and, given that concrete pavements are preferred by many road authorities due to its hard...
