Volumetric Mixer produces 398 cubic yards of rapid strength concrete in just 5 hours, for panel replacement work on one of California's busiest freeways. Product used was Rapid Set Cement.
Asphalt has held the lion’s share of repair work for years. But now, pavements made of concrete prove to be more cost effective in the initial installment as well as more durable than asphalt, making them the ideal choice for repairing aging roadways. Product used is Rapid Set Cement.
The window for the work to be performed was from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. nightly. In that window, demolition, installation, and curing the concrete all had to be completed in time for the morning commute. Rapid Set Cement was the only choice to meet these strict traffic limitations and 3000 psi for opening strength was achieved.
Using a fast-setting Rapid Set Cement for a Latex Modified Concrete Overlay instead of Type III portland cement, allowed schedules to be met despite unexpected delays.
Because the roadway had to be returned to traffic by a specified time with a minimum compressive strength of 1,600 psi, Rapid Set Cement’s fast curing time was the ideal solution. The contractor was able to use the closure times efficiently to replace more panels each weekend.
Work was able to be performed overnight and lanes reopened to traffic by morning. 12,000 spall repairs and dowel bar retrofits were completed using DOT Repair Mix.
The NCDOT oversaw the full-depth panel replacement on the southern stretch of Interstate-40 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Rapid Set cement concrete was used and met the specifications of 400-psi flexural strength in two hours, in half the time.
After removing the concrete around the manholes, the collars were reset to the correct elevations using Concrete Mix. SET Control was used when temperatures rose. With no delays, crews met the construction schedule.
Using the Rapid Set cement, RA Knapp was able to get 2.3 times the production in the same 8-hour time frame. The two patching projects were finished on ahead of schedule.
To ensure all timelines and incentives could be met, Rapid Set Cement and DOT Repair Mix Concentrate (aka DOT Concentrate) were used for all patching and doweling work. Work included full-depth panel replacements and slot stitching at longitudinal cracks and joints and DBR at transverse cracks and joints using DOT Concentrate.
Approximately 7 to 8 miles of freeway needed potholes repaired. Concrete Mix was chosen for its high early strength so repairs could be made overnight. The lanes were successfully open for traffic each morning.
UltraFlow 4000/8 was chosen to grout the panels on SR 18/Snoqualmie Parkway and nearby local intersections. The grout was pumped under the precast panels and achieved a minimum 500 psi to quickly open to traffic.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has been using concrete mix designs containing Rapid Set Cement, since 2014, to meet performance specifications for their roadway panel replacement projects.
Unlike the chemically stabilized air bubble of traditional methods, Low-P MSA's air voids are made up of tiny, flexible hollow polymer spheres that act as microscopic forms in the cement matrix. They are rigid enough to form voids in the hardened concrete, yet soft enough to compress and allow space for expanding water to provide the desired freeze/thaw protection.
Rapid-hardening cement concrete can be used anywhere portland cement concrete can be used, and offers the greatest advantages when used for repair or rehabilitation of highway and airport pavements, bridge decks and overlays, and other projects where time is of the essence. Product used is Rapid Set Cement.
300 cubic yards of concrete were successful placed in 6 hours. The freeway opened to traffic an hour after placement. Short Load produced the Rapid Set Concrete.
Contractor crews for the WSDOT rehabilitated approximately 15 miles of pavement on I-205 in Vancouver using Rapid Set Cement.
Salt Lake City’s micro-trenching work occurred when Utah was still experiencing winter weather. Flowable Fill flowed well into the trench’s small space and set up quickly despite the cold weather, achieving the specified requirement of 500 psi in 28 days, with 1/2 maximum strength at opening, which was a few hours.
The sustainability of concrete, the most widely used material in the world, is still a difficult concept to quantify. However, the Product Category Rules (PCRs) for concrete are a step in the right direction. This article focuses on the sustainability of materials used in civil infrastructure such as highways and bridges, but the concepts explored are also frequently applicable to materials used for building repair.
TxDOT used Concrete Mix and Mortar Mix to repair 180 miles of spalled, cracked concrete roadway. Part of the project took place in extreme temperatures ranging as from 95 to 109 degrees Fahrenheit. The products met the state of Texas' specifications and requirements.
UDOT Region 4 was very pleased with the State Street project because Rapid Set Cement allowed short closure times, minimizing the project’s impact on the traveling public.
Copings at train station were repaired to provide a safe surface for embarking/disembarking passengers. Work was performed during hot weather with temperatures reaching 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Cement All and SET Control were used.
