Abstract

Construction of a new bitumen-surfaced road or airport pavement in an arid area usually requires the use of several thousand cubic metres of water per day for compaction.


The use of salt water - or even only brack water - for compaction in the past has had mixed success and often resulted in surface disintegration of the primed base course and/or blistering of the surfacing. This experience led to fresh water usually being specified - particularly in the granular base course - in order to avoid such salt damage.
