Development of open-structured cement-bound paving blocks

Low-noise concrete block pavement under practical ­conditions

Concrete block road surfacings are an established alternative to concrete and asphalt surfacings, in particular in inner-city areas, since they enable simple and rapid construction and are of high aesthetic value. Although block pavements are primarily used in residential areas, product development has so far not focused on their noise-reducing properties. Within the scope of a joint research project at the Center for Building Materials and Materials Testing (cbm) at Munich Technical University aimed at achieving noise-reducing properties through open-structured concrete paving blocks. The...
