Development of an abrasive test for pavement products made of concrete

Objective



The objective of this project is to develop a test for the abrasion resistance of pavements and concrete slabs suitable for submission as a EN standard, in support of implementation of the 89/106/EEC Directive on construction products. In conformance with the recommendations of CEN TC 178 WG1 the project will be based upon an improved version of the 7 cm wheel test defined in the French NF P 98 303 norm and its correlation with the Böhme test DIN 52108.

Seven laboratories from different European countries participate in the project which consists of a research phase followed by an intercomparison.
