Laying by Pavers . Graders hence better surface finish .Can achieve higher unit weight hence higher .where water is available .Homogeneous mix as it is controlled mechanically .Mix can be mixed at suitable locations .Advantages of Using WMM .Because of premixing with water seggregation reduces .Quicker .

Less compactive effort to achieve max density uniform coating of moisture film around aggregates .Controlled gradation / crushed ..More output in construction .

Limitations .Normally mechanically crushed aggregates tends to be rounded than manually crushed aggregates .Lateral confinement .After construction of top layer immediate sealing with bituminous surface .

find OMC after replacing retained on 22. Preparation of Mix .Construction Operations 1.4 mm 4.75 to 22.for small quantity concrete mixer may be used . Preparation of Base 2. Spreading of Mix . Provision of lateral confinement of aggregates 3.4 mm with material 4.

displacement occuring due to roller operations are to be rectified . Compaction .finishing by Paver / grader .8to 10 tonne static compactor up to 100 mm .8-10 vibratory roller up to 200 mm ..Speed of compactor not to exceed 5 km/hour .Spreading of mix to be done uniformly / evenly .Due importance for segregation 5.should not be dumped in heaps .

If irregularities during rolling more than 12 mm for straight edge . surface to be loosned and premixed material to be added 6. Any defections on the surface to be rectified 7. Setting and Drying 8. Opening to traffic after sealing ..Rolling not be done when subgrade is soft/yielding /causes wave like motion .Use small compactors near kerb/places not assessable to roller .
