Bituminous Roads Reinforcement
PRODUCTS FOR STRENGTHENING OF BITUMINOUS CONGLOMERATES
When a wheel of a vehicle passes over a gap existing within the pavement structure, voltages are transmitted directly to the cutting top layer. The intensity of these shear stresses depend on the thickness of the covering layer, the thickness of the substrate existing structural, from the load-bearing capacity of the substrate and the irregularity of the walls of the slit. When the cover layer is subjected to tensions caused by the continuous load and repeated traffic, after each load cycle reduces its resistance and its stability up to cause the cracking of the asphalt itself. The use of a geogrid reinforcement allows to increase the resistance of the bituminous conglomerate going to significantly increase the useful life, thus lengthening the intervals between successive repairs and then decreasing maintenance costs artery road.
