Abstract

The paper reports the results obtained during an experimental research conducted in real
working conditions of road embankment made with C&DW. For this purpose an experimental
road, 30 m long, 4 m wide and 4 m high was built, installing 12 instruments: 3 pressure cells
to measure stresses and 9 Linear Variable Differential Transformers (LVDTs) to measure
deformations. The data were collected under different load and traffic speed magnitude. At this
point of the research data are being analysed and compared, and the results reported on this
paper.
