Dutch to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / road construction
Dutch term or phrase:aangeheeld
"Na het slopen dient de bestaande constructie eventueel te worden aangestort/aangeheeld/gestraald, zodat de innovatieve voegovergangen kunnen worden ingebouwd."
Thank you for your assistance and sorry about the long wait with the question. I have just translated the updates and now I have technical description details and diagram and this is the answer which fits here. Thanks again. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Thanks Jack and thanks Lianne for the reference. Smoothing (smoothening ?) may fit but not final smoothing as it seems to refer to a kind preparatory work to possibly be carried out prior to construction/insertion of the test joint.
Lianne thanks - I didn't find that reference so that was helpful, but it does seem a little different in this case as the "aangestort/aangeheeld/gestraald" seem all to be types of preparation works which prepare (the ends?) existing structure to allow the new experimental structure to be built in. Unless of course the new joint is of different dimensions than the previous one ....
What kind of material is being used? Gravel? Sand? Concrete?

Explanation: Tip: google 'final smoothing' in combination with 'road', or 'road construction' in combination with 'smoothing'.

"If the Developer allows the moisture content of accepted compacted material to reach a value above the maximum permitted for the material for compaction the Developer shall allow the material to revert to
an acceptable moisture content and if directed by the Engineer,
make good the surface by re-compaction before laying the subbase
in accordance with 6.7.1(i) to (iv) inclusive."
