Dane County Waste Transfer Station

Dane County - October 2012

Project Description

Prior to arriving in landfills, garbage is hauled to waste transfer stations and dumped or “tipped” onto a floor where it is reloaded into larger trucks. These “tipping slabs” are known to be some of the most challenging slabs to construct in the industry. They are subject to extremely harsh conditions, aggressive chemicals, impact loads, abrasive elements and damage from heavy processing equipment. This particular slab was originally specified with trap rock aggregate, 6,000 psi concrete, 10″ thickness and 66 lbs. / yd. cu. of hook-end steel fibers. Steel fibers were replaced with FORTA-FERRO®. Understanding the challenged of a tipping slab, a 12 lbs. / cu. yd. dosage was put to the test. Results were successful regarding both placement and finish ability. The main area of this tipping slab was 166′ x 133′ with no control joints. Follow-up yielded very favorable results.
