FISSAC Concrete road pavement in Adana
The Case study 1 has been sucessfully achieved by Türkiye Çimento Müstahsilleri Birliği – TÇMB in Adana, Turkey. The process followed a series of phases which transformed a waste in a resource, complying with FISSAC phylosophy.
First of all, two layers of wire mesh steel were placed above the base layer.
In the meanwhile, ready mix concrete was produced at a nearby plant using mix-22 blended cement and aggregates. The concrete mix was transported to the construction area.
The concrete has been pumped into the construction area.
The surface was smoothened by a surface vibrator screed respectively. Finally, it was finished by a walk-behind power trowel. It was broom-textured to increase the skid resistance.
The concrete road has been tested using heavy vehicles.
