Quality control of earthworks and (sub)base layers
Areas of Expertise (1)>>
Core Tasks (2)>>
Both at the European and the global level, exchange and work structures are developing that foster technical progress in earthworks and earthmoving projects. They promote:
Such structures include:
BRRC participates in these efforts and focuses on the development of new inspection methods using measurement techniques that are more representative of traffic-induced stresses (dynamic loading) as well as high-yield techniques that are faster and require relatively short preparation times.
Earthmoving machines, especially compactors, are increasingly capable of processing information while carrying out works; they are the precursors of “intelligent” machines (Continuous Compaction Control).
To bring the studies in this area of expertise to a successful conclusion, BRRC has purchased the following equipment:
