The history and development of road roller

- Feb 25, 2019-

When it comes to road rollers, we have to make a brief introduction to the development of compaction technology. As early as in ancient times, people used the hoof feet of the herd to trample the soil, smash and compact to deal with the foundation of the house, compacting the dam. And the river embankment. Before the middle of the 19th century, the western road engineering was mainly paved with gravel. The compaction was mainly carried out by vehicles. After the invention of the rolling mill in 1858, the development of gravel pavement was promoted. The compaction of the roller with a horse-drawn roller gradually appeared. This was the earliest prototype of the roller. In 1860, a steam roller appeared in France, which further promoted and improved the construction technology and quality of the gravel pavement and accelerated the progress. At the beginning of the 20th century, the world recognized that gravel pavement was the best road at that time and was promoted to the whole world. The concept of compaction was gradually known. The road roller also appeared on various road construction sites. In the middle of the 19th century, the internal combustion engine The invention has brought tremendous vitality to the development of compaction equipment. The first internal combustion engine driven roller was born in the early 20th century. Subsequent to the tire roller, the sheep foot roller compactor and the light roller compactor were produced at the same time. The compaction effect of the static roller was studied. It is believed that increasing the weight of the roller can increase the line pressure of the roller and increase the pressure. Real effect. Therefore, for a long period of time, people have been committed to the development of large-tonnage road rollers, the largest tire roller has weighed more than 200 tons, but during this period, the change of the road roller is mainly reflected in the improvement of power and shape
