Concrete pavements - Part 4: Test methods for the determination of wear resistance of concrete pavements to studded tyres

|ICS Code (Road construction materials):||93.080.20|
This European Standard describes a test method for the determination of the wear resistance to studded tyres of specimens either cut from hardened concrete pavements or moulded in laboratory. NOTE The test method is applicable for the finished concrete (end product testing) and not only for the aggregate as described in EN 1097-9. In the report from Swedish Road and Transport Research Institute (1996), Ring Analysis of Nordic Road Simulators: Proposal for a common test method for the determination of the wear resistance of concrete pavements, more information of the methods precision is given (see Bibliography). Three different configurations of the test equipment are considered in this document, one using truck-wheels and the other two using car-wheels.
