Slab on grade (on asphalt)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Hi,
There is a heavy-load storage area where owner wants to pour a concrete slab on top of the existing asphalt. The final grade is 10"-12" above the existing and concrete slab thickness will be 8". I'm not sure how the asphalt will perform as the subbase. I'm also concerned about the locations where there is only 2" under the concrete slab. All comments will be appreciated.

Thanks,
