Roadwork thanks Vincent T. H. Chu  for granting permission to reproduce his answers to some of the most basic yet highly challenging civil engineering questions on Bridges, Concrete Structures, Piles & Foundations, Earthwork and Roadwork

Roadwork: Q-A

1 How can unreinforced concrete pavement function without mesh reinforcement?
2 Why are concrete profile barriers designed with curved surface profiles?
3 Should joints of concrete kerbs be in line with the joints in concrete carriageway?
4 Why is the slump specified in concrete carriageway comparatively low (30mm) when compared with normal concrete (75mm)?
5 Can all utility detectors detect the depth of utilities?
