ASCP2021 6th Concrete Pavements (e)Conference – Proceedings

Conference-paper-ascp, Conference-report, Ascp-conference-presentation

Outline 2020 tested our flexural capacity and at times strained our mental tensile strength to 85% yield. To maintain tradition, ASCP has worked hard to develop a unique line-up of papers and delivery format for its 6th Concrete Pavements Conference which was delivered in August 2021. Like previous biennial conferences,...

ASCP Forum – Maintenance of Concrete Road Pavements – Specifications & Materials


Sydney has a very large network of State and Local Government concrete roads built from the mid 1920s to the 1950s.  There is an increasing need for slab replacements, but with worksite access typically limited to a single night shift.  Using CSA rapid set cement, there are now 12 years...

CRCP Rehabilitation Design to Rectify Mine Subsidence Damage on M1 Motorway

Conference-paper-ascp, Ascp-conference-presentation

This paper details the concrete reinforced concrete pavement rehabilitation design required to rectify the damage due mine subsidence on the M1 Motorway north of Cockle Creek Killingworth. Concrete pavement settlements had been monitored from July 2003 to November 2010 at a series of locations along the northbound and southbound carriageways....

The Performance of Low Noise Diamond Grinding (LNDG)

Conference-paper-ascp, Ascp-conference-presentation

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...

New Developments in Rapid Set Concrete Slab Replacements

Conference-paper-ascp, Ascp-conference-presentation

Current and future eras are seeing an operational environment where road occupancy for pavement maintenance or repairs will be severely restricted under conditions of maximising availability for service traffic and access to roadside properties. A key driving force for concrete pavement slab replacement, where required, is the need to use...

New Method of Paving Concrete Production

Conference-paper-ascp, Ascp-conference-presentation

Modern concrete pavements are based on sophisticated blends of cements, often containing SCM, graded nonreactive aggregates and various admixtures, all of which are aimed at producing the most durable pavement possible. Placement techniques also incorporate the use of various curing compounds, which again are aimed at producing durable concrete. However,...

The Role of Quality Assurance in Delivering Long-Life Concrete Pavements

Conference-paper-ascp, Ascp-conference-presentation

The fundamental goal of any pavement design and construction project is to provide a pavement system that will survive the predicted traffic and environment for the pavement design life. Structural design is primarily considered as the way to meet that goal. Concrete mixtures and construction practices are generally assumed to...
