  5. 6. PSI Number of Years Quality of the Road Rehabilition of Concrete Pavement 5 1 4 3 2
  6. 7. Rubblizing Rehabilition of Concrete Pavement
  7. 8. Rubblizing Rehabilition of Concrete Pavement
  8. 9. Rubblizing Rehabilition of Concrete Pavement
  9. 10. Structural Design: Correlations 1 to 8”
  11. 12. Description of Rubblizing Equipment Pedestal / Shoe Resonant Beam Weight Flotation Tires Motor Computer Controls

  13. 14. Vibration Technology Weight Frequency 44 Hz Amplitude 3/4” Description of Resonant Beam
  14. 15. Frequency 44 Hz Amplitude 3/4” Vibration Technology Weight Description of Resonant Beam
  15. 16. Operational Data of Equipment <ul><li>Strikes PCC 44 Times per Second </li></ul><ul><li>2,000 lbs. of Pressure Per Strike </li></ul><ul><li>Beam Weighs 4080 kg. </li></ul><ul><li>Raises 3/4” Per Strike </li></ul><ul><li>Machine Speed at Approx. 4-5 mph </li></ul><ul><li>Breaking Area is 10” Wide </li></ul><ul><li>Average Rubblized Per Day: 7,000 sq. yd </li></ul>
  17. 18. Structural Design: Methods <ul><li>AASHTO – Procedure Design (SN) </li></ul><ul><li>Asphalt Institute – Series Manuals (MS) -17 </li></ul><ul><li>NAPA – Series Information (IS) –117 </li></ul><ul><li>Airfield Asphalt Pavement Technology Program - AAPTP </li></ul>
  18. 19. Structural Design: State Studies <ul><li>Over 20 Studies from Multiple States support that rubblizing provides: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Long life for surfaces – 22+ years </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Smooth driving conditions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rubblization eliminates reflective cracking and dramatically reduces surface defects </li></ul></ul>Alabama Michigan
  19. 20. Structural Design: Evaluation <ul><li>Pavement after years of use and deterioration. </li></ul><ul><li>Expert analysis is required to insure that the cause of the failure of the pavement. </li></ul><ul><li>If the Damage does Not arise the Subgrade or Sub-Base Problems, Pavement is a Candidate for Rubblization. </li></ul><ul><li>If the Subgrade has Problems, Rubblization will Not Eliminate the Issue. </li></ul>
  20. 21. Structural Design: Drainage <ul><li>Proper Drainage System should be Installed or Repaired Prior to Rubblizing the Pavement. </li></ul><ul><li>Varying Methods of Drainage can be Used Depending on the Site. </li></ul>
  21. 22. Structural Design: Drainage 10 cm open-graded 5 cm dense-graded # 57 Stone 3 % Slope Outlet Filter Fabric Shoulder Area Rubblized PCC Base Course Subgrade Permeable Zone Relief Cut @ 9-12 m.
  22. 23. The Modulus of the Rubblized Concrete depends on the Thickness, Subbase and Subgrade. Typically Rubblized Concrete is 2.5 Times Stronger than any Granular Material. Structural Design: Scope E 1 E 3 > E 2 E 4 > E 3 Where E 3 = f (E 2 ) Where E 2 = f (E 1 ) E 2 > E 1 Subbase Sub grade
