Semi-Flexible (Resin Modified) Pavement

Researched cement grout using polycarboxilite super-plasticizers to achieve the same flow cone time as the two commercially available grout systems. Obtained samples of both commercially available systems(EucoDensit and PL-7 resin additive). Numerous sets of cement cubes have been cast to evaluate short term strength and freeze-thaw durability. Three sets of 2 - 6 inch diameter 3 inch high test samples have been tested in an Asphalt Pavement Analyzer (APA) @25,000 cycles @ 64 C dry, then 25,000 cycles @ 64C submerged. The samples were tested using a 100 lb. wheel load with 100 psi. air pressure. None of the samples show any signs of degradation. One set was later subjected to steel wheel testing for 25,000 cycles @ 64 C, submerged. Four inch diameter cores and 2 inch cubes survived 300 F/T cycles. In the process of looking for field trials.
