PAVEMENT MATERIAL INVESTIGATIONS
We can offer the capability to undertake material investigations of proposed new road alignments and existing pavements. The targeting of testing locations can be established from preliminary analysis and sectioning of deflection data collected with the FWD, in conjunction with information obtained from the visual condition survey.
We can provide interpretation of field and laboratory testing results for application within a pavement structure. Material properties can also be analysed to advise on blending components or modifying material properties with additives such as cement or lime. We can also explore the innovative use of such means as: alternative stabilisation treatments, insitu blending of imported gravels to improve existing insitu materials and the utilisation of less expensive, abundant non-standard pavement materials in the pavement structure.
