Diamond Grinding Pavement Interactive

Diamond grinding addresses serviceability problems but not their root cause. For example, diamond grinding can substantially reduce the roughness on a faulted rigid pavement, but it will not address the cause of faulting, nor will it prevent roughness in the future as a result of additional faulting. Because the grinding head is cooled with water, a byproduct of diamond grinding is a slurry of ground PCC

Impact of Diamond Grinding on Rigid Pavement

Diamond grinding is a rigid pavement preservation treatment which is typically utilized to increase pavement smoothness by eliminating the surface undulations. The focus of this study is to evaluate the impact of diamond grinding on rigid pavement performance by using the mechanistic-empirical procedure.

Chapter 13 Maintenance, Repair, and Rehabilitation

2021-6-29  Major applications for diamond grinding are to remove surface irregularities (most commonly joint faulting or joint elevation differences), restore a smooth-riding surface, increase pavement surface friction, and reduce pavement noise. For PCP applications, diamond grinding is typically per- formed at the time of panel installation to eliminate any installation-related joint elevation differences and to provide good (as specified) pavement

RPMTAG Chapter 5 Diamond Grinding and Grooving

2021-6-30  It is important to recognize that diamond grinding can only be used to restore some of the functional characteristics of the pavement such as smoothness and skid resistance. If the pavement has structural or material deficiencies, diamond grinding will not repair or improve any of these defects. Diamond grinding should be used with discretion and only when needed, because it also reduces pavement thickness which can affect long-term pavement
