OUTLINE OF THE DEPARTMENT AND WORK DONE

ASPHALT OVERLAY AND ITS PROCESSES

DRESSING OF SHOULDER WORK

ARRANGEMENT OF KERBS AND CHUTES

FORMATION,CAUSES AND PATCHING


METHOD OF POTHOLE
MY PARTICIPATION AT OSOPADEC
This is done in order to
know the number of
truck of asphalt that RECORDING AND CALCULATING
VOLUME OF THE POTHOLES
would be enough for
the work that day
The volume is
calculated thus
.Assumption
volume =L*B*H

650*7.3*5=23725
specific gravity of
wearing course is 2.24
23725*2.24=53144
53144/25 tonne the
truck can carry
In thisPATICIPATION
section, I was
CONTINUED
fully on ground
ensuring that gravel
and stone dust which
is the stone base being
spread uniformly
before compaction ,
finally spraying of
S125.

A spraying machine
called tar boiler used
in spraying the S125
ARRANGEMENT OF CHUTES
ASPHALT OVERLAYING BOTH BINDER AND
WEARING COURSE

An existing road was


asphalted with binder
and wearing course
after proper leveling
was ensured and mc1
had being spray.
Compaction with steel
roller and tyre roller
for smoothening the
compacted portion.
PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED AND SOLUTIONS
PROFFERED

Excessive water in some areas being


reconstructed

.Redundancy of workers

.Belatedness in some materials


EXCESSIVE WATER IN THE AREA BEING RECONSTRUCTED

A pumping machine was used to remove the water in


those areas before
AFTER OVERCOMING THE CHALLENGE
The water was removed by a pumping machine before
the blinding was possible. This is a culvert with a Y12
main bar and Y10 distribution bar. Marine board that
stand as a support to the wall was strikeout .
EXPERIENCE GAINED DURING THE TRAINING

SIMPLE CALCULATION ON AREA OF CUT PORTION OF


POTHOLES

RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS STUDENTS ON SITE

PROCESSES IN ASPHALT OVERLAYING AND THEIR


EQUIPMENTS

PRACTICAL WORK IS EASIER THAN THEORITICAL


WORK
conclusion
In conclusion, the practical exposure I got while I was
at the department deposited in me the skills that is
needed in this dispensation- the need and necessity to
comfortably survive by what you know and how to do
it better.

I deduced that practical knowledge is easier than


theoretical knowledge.
RECOMMENDATION

I recommend that the department should


always try their best to reach out to the
student on SIWES through telephone call
or other means, in other to know the
students wellbeing and to encourage the
students to do better.
