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.

Impact of Diamond Grinding on Rigid Pavement

The effectiveness of a diamond grinding was assessed by evaluating the IRI before and after the treatment. Generally, smoother pavements will have lower IRI, which will result in less vehicle body and axle bounce. Consequently, the pavement will be subjected to reduced dynamic loads which may cause less pavement damage or vice versa.

Diamond grinding (Figure 1) refers to a process where gang-mounted diamond saw blades (Figures 2 and 3) are used to shave off a thin, 1.5 – 19 mm (0.06 – 0.75 inch) top layer of an existing PCC surface in order to restore smoothness and friction characteristics. Most often, it is used to restore roadway friction or remove roughness caused by faulting, studded tire wear, and slab warping ...
