Volcanic cinder gravels occur extensively in Ethiopia, but in the past they have been used for road construction only to a' limited extent, even though their use would substantially reduce road construction costs in many instances. As part of a joint research project undertaken by the Ethiopian Road Authority and the United Kingdom Transport and Road Research Laboratory, research has been carried out to provide information on the occurrence and properties of the volcanic cinders with the object… Expand
TITLE by Experimental use of cinder gravels on roads in Ethiopia
SUMMARY: A full scale experiment has been carried out in Ethiopia to examine the performance of volcanic cinder gravels as the surfacing material for unpaved roads and as the road base underExpand
Experimental Use of Weathered Gravels on Roads in Ethiopia Basalt
Specifications for aggregate surfacings in Ethiopia are based on plasticity and grading with a maximum aggregate size of 38 mm. Roads built to these specifications have performed well, but the costExpand
PARTIAL REPLACEMENT OF CRUSHED AGGREGATE BASE COURSE MATERIAL WITH CINDER GRAVEL AND FINE SOIL
Base course, the layer incorporating flexible pavements, is usually built directly under the asphalt-wearing course. The quality of base course materials is essential and is evaluated as perExpand
Stabilizing cinder gravels for heavily trafficked base course
Investigation into the improvement of natural cinder gravels with the use of stabilization techniques was made using samples collected from quarry sites near Alemgena and Lake Chamo. Mechanical andExpand
