Technical Note: Outlays on Construction of Airport Runways with Prestressed and Dowelled Pavements


For two variants of runways with abrasive concrete pavements in the prestressed and dowelled technologies, analyses have been presented regarding labour, materials, use of machinery, and financial outlays, together with the necessary technological-organisational analyses and assessment of work execution cycles, by the example of construction of a runway at the Katowice Airport.

Effective Friction Angle Of Deltaic Soils In The Vistula Marshlands

1 Introduction 1.1 Aim of research This research is focused on effective angle of internal friction and compares the results for the Vistula Marshlands muds and peats with similar soft soils. Effective shear strength parameters of the deltaic soils near Gdańsk are measured in drained and undrained triaxial compression tests and estimated with the Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH) method using the Cone Penetration Tests (CPTU) sounding. The observed dilative-contractive soil behaviour is discussed taking into account the CPTU classification chart

Slurry shield tunneling in soft ground. Comparison between field data and 3D numerical simulation

1 Introduction During the past decade, pressurized-face tunnel-boring machines (TBMs), such as slurry shield, have established itself as a proven technology. It is characterized by safety, excavation speed, and minimal impacts on the surrounding environment ( Xie et al., 2016 ). It is usually used in urban areas where the control of ground movements is an essential task in the design of shallow tunnels. However, shield tunneling inevitably causes some ground movements that can have adverse effects on both buried and aboveground infrastructures and buildings

Application of The New Shape Crushing Plate in Machine Crushing Processes

consumption of the technological systems of minerals processing. The technological process should also be matched to the material properties to ensure maximum effects in terms of technology, economy and ecology. The jaw crusher works on the initial stage of the crushing process (the first stage of crushing) in the raw material processing plant. In mining these crushers are used for processing ores, coal and rock materials. The most common crushers used are double toggle (such as Blake type) or single toggle jaw crusher (Dalton type). In this work, studies on Blake type
