Abstract

The recommendations presented in this publication are inspired by the State of the Art Report edited by the RILEM Technical Committee TC 193 RLS Bonded cement-based material overlays for the repair, the lining or the strengthening of slabs and pavements. The objective is to lay out all the practical aspects to be considered in the design of concrete overlays: bonded concrete overlay process, assessment of the existing structure, surface preparation, overlay materials, design methods, construction procedure and quality control/assurance system, and maintenance.

Résumé

Ces recommandations s’inspirent de l’état de l’art issu des travaux du Comité Technique RILEM TC 193 RLS Réparation, re-surfaçage ou renforcement des dallages industriels ou des chaussées par un rechargement adhérent à base cimentaire. Elles visent à donner aux chercheurs, ingénieurs et auteurs de projets les données fondamentales à prendre en considération lors de l’élaboration d’un projet de resurfaçage : processus de décision, évaluation de la structure existante, préparation de la surface, matériaux de re-surfaçage, conception, construction, contrôle qualité et entretien.
