Construction and Preliminary HVS Tests of Pre-Cast Concrete Pavement Slabs

Project Details




Project description

This report presents the details on the construction and preliminary load tests on an experimental pavement comprised of ten pre-cast slabs of the pavement known as the Super-Slabå¨ System, installed at the intersection of I-15 and SR210, in San Bernardino County in southern California. The construction of the test section consisted of: (a) Construction of a cement-treated base (CTB), (b) Preparation of a sand bedding layer, (c) Placement of the pre-cast slabs, (d) Application of grout materials for the bedding and for the dowel/tie bars, (e) Diamond grinding the test pads, (f) Filling the joints, and (g) Construction of an asphalt concrete shoulder.
