Road trial for wearing coarses in Latvia

posted Jun 25, 2015, 6:21 AM by Martins Zaumanis
Eight different wearing courses were monitored for 11 years in Latvia to assess the materials used, mixture designs, construction practices, and performance of the pavement. The 500m long sections were built on a road with one of the heaviest traffic intensities in Latvia. The results are summarized in an article in "Materials and Structures" describing the performance of the sections and the resulting decisions that were made to improve road construction specifications.
