Concrete Pavement Maintenance
Slab stabilization has been used to restore support to slabs by filling voids, thereby reducing deflections and retarding the development of additional pavement deterioration. Settlements sometimes occur on concrete pavements in areas of poor foundation support. Such settlements not only provide riding discomfort, but they also can create large stresses in the slab that can lead to cracking. In some cases, these slabs can be raised back to their original elevation by pressure inserting a material beneath the settled slabs and raising them back to the desired elevation. This process of raising slabs is referred to as slab jacking.
