Course Summary

This course presents materials, criteria, and procedures for rapid repair of uncontrolled cracks and spalls in rigid pavements by using epoxy resin grouts, mortars, and concretes. This guidance is applicable to the repair of rigid pavements on roads and airfields.

Learning Objectives

In this course we learn expedient methods of repairing uncontrolled cracks and spalls in rigid pavements in order to minimize the time a pavement is closed to traffic. Approved epoxy resins, described herein, provide binding agents particularly suitable for use in this type of work where a high degree of bond in a short period of time is needed. The high strengths obtainable in a short curing time usually permit regular traffic on the pavements within 24 to 48 hours after the repair, depending upon temperature conditions.
