The ground was complete shit. 24"-36" of urban fill on a clay base. We just knocked the sub base flat and installed the mats. Engineered calcs decided the mat thickness.

That's cool as hell. You guys install the precast so in a few years I can come in and fix and maintain it. It would amaze you how much just recaulking a precast deck that size costs and how long it takes

That's some serious matting. The erector put down a wood mat when it was time to install the 5 level garage on our New Jersey project. It only required a single lane in as it was only a 2 bay, 120' wide garage.

The garage was pinned in between the building on one side and light rail tracks on the other. Only one way in and that was over large grade beams cut into urban fill.

yep, keeping the money cycle going. Only about a third of this deck is caulked(150x200). the remaining area is 80 mil roof then 8" insulation topped with 4" lightweight topping.

this is 24"- 36" of urban fire fill over good clay. I think the engineer has stock in the wood matting company. But Hey, no letters after my title.

Use timber matting all the time in oil & gas. Great way to increase ground bearing loads quickly.

For example, we can build a 6,000 metric ton oil & gas processing module in a ship yard, take it to site on a barge, pick it up with a self-propelled module transporter (SPMT), drive it over the timber matting, and set it on its piles. Rinse and repeat until all of the modules are in place, and then remove the timber matting. Not only is it faster, we can spend much less money on permanent gravel pads and roads since we don't have to build them for a one time period event.

Timber mat, the modern "corduroy road". Very cool video!

This type of road is known to have been used as early as 4,000 BC with examples found in Glastonbury, England. Compare the puncheon or plank road, which uses hewn boards instead of logs, resulting in a smoother and safer surface. It also was constructed in Roman times. - wiki
