Transcript

  • 1. Two Lift Paving An Overview Dr Peter Taylor With thanks to: Jim Grove FHWA
  • 2. Two-Lift Paving • What is it? • History in the US • Advantages • Barriers • Where next?
  • 3. What is it? • Placement of two wet-on-wet layers of concrete
  • 4. History • Concept is not new Blome Granitoid
  • 5. History • Europeans learned it from us • We learned it again from them in 1992 and 2006
  • 6. History • FL 1977 US41 • MI 1993 I75 • KS 1997 Hwy 96 • FL 2001 • KS 2008 I70 • MnRoad 2010 • MO 2011 SH141
  • 7. Benefits • Lower impact system below • High–end system above • Improved life cycle cost • Improved environmental impact
  • 8. Benefits • Lower level Aggregates not suitable for surface: Polishing Local!
  • 9. Benefits • Lower level Recycled materials High SCM contents Lower environmental impact
  • 10. Benefits • Lower level Strong enough for structural purposes – but no more ~600 psi flex Not necessarily durable
  • 11. Benefits • Upper level Exposed aggregate finish Quiet Good friction
  • 12. Benefits • Upper level Special materials TiO2 High durability mix Strength likely higher than needed
  • 13. Barriers • Two paving trains • Batching control
  • 14. Barriers • Cost Reportedly initial cost increment can be small LCCA indicates savings • Specifications IL Tollway • Experience There is a learning curve
  • 15. Where next? • It is common in Europe • Have to address: Fear The learning curve Specifications
