Abstract:

A design procedure is presented for three types of flexible pavement conventional, bituminous concrete, and chemically stabilized. These represent nearly all flexible pavements being constructed at this time. Designs are based on analytically determined strain values and experimental and laboratory determined material fatigue strengths. Thus, the procedure can handle in a rational manner the possible variations in the properties of different pavement materials. An adaptation of the cumulative damage concept permits the consideration of cyclic variation in bituminous materials due to variations in temperatures and the variation in subgrade strength resulting from freeze-thaw cycles.
