Caractérisation des matériaux recyclés pour leur utilisation en construction routière et détermination de leurs modules résilients de déformation au moyen de l’essai triaxial cyclique (Contracts CCN 309 and CCN 359 – 1st March 2006 – 1st September 2008)
This project on the characterizing of recycled materials for use in road construction and the determination of resilient modulus by cyclic triaxial testing was carried out with the financial support of the Federal Public Service (FPS) Economy, SME’s, Self-employed and Energy.
There are many reference books on cycle infrastructure. As a result, local and regional planners sometimes appear to be inundated with information and find it difficult to select the solution that best fits their specific situation.
Moreover, the legislation in force for cyclists is manifold, complicated and constantly amended. The Belgian highway code and road managers’ code gather all the legislation on road traffic as a whole, in which it is sometimes difficult to find the required “cycle” information quickly.
As part of the 2010-2014 master plan for pedestrian traffic in the Brussels Capital Region, a manual has been prepared for the improvement of pedestrian facilities. The first part of this manual deals with pedestrian pavements, and BRRC was mandated to draft this part. It describes the fields of application and the specific features of laying and maintenance of the various paving materials used on pedestrian routes. The environmental aspects involved are discussed as well.
