Latest Findings on the Construction Type “Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement”

 PDF courtesy of the European Concrete Paving Association (EUPave). In 1920, the first Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) was constructed in the USA. In Europe, this type of construction was first applied in Belgium in 1948. Since then, more than...

Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement in the A-7 Mediterranean Motorway of Spain

 PDF courtesy of the European Concrete Paving Association (EUPave). Long-life concrete pavements require less frequent repair, rehabilitation, and reconstruction, and therefore contribute to improving highway safety and mitigating congestion. Experience with these pavements, including examples of concrete pavements that have...

The CRCP/BBGA Composite Structure for the Bassens Building Site (Gironde Department in France)

 PDF courtesy of the European Concrete Paving Association (EUPave). The continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP)/bituminous-bound graded aggregates (BBGA) composite structure has been chosen as a base solution for the conversion and development road works carried out in the industrial harbour...

Roundabouts in Continuously Reinforced Concrete: Design and Construction

 PDF courtesy of the European Concrete Paving Association (EUPave). In Belgium, as in many European countries, traffic at major junctions is managed increasingly by constructing right-of-way roundabouts, which allow safer and smoother traffic flow. The intense heavy traffic at these...

Use of Glass FRP Reinforcing Bars instead of Steel Bars in CRCP in Quebec

In North America, there is a persistent problem of the deterioration of steel-reinforced concrete which has limited the service life and increased the maintenance cost of such structures. The first Canadian continuous reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) built on a...

Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement with SMA Coating – The Composite Structure for the Challenges of the Future

Concrete carriageways can in principle be made in two versions: As continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) or as non-reinforced slabs with transverse joints at regular distances. To date, Germany has focused on the slab construction type. It was continuously...

A Double-Layered CRCP: Experiences on the E34 Near Antwerp (Belgium)

The technique of double-layered concrete or two-lift paving is applied either to obtain a high-quality top layer, to use lower quality materials in the lower lift, or for both reasons at the same time. In Europe this technique is...
