Pavement Analysis and Design - BOOK CIVIL




Pavement Analysis and Design


Although pavement design has gradually evolved from art to science, empiricism still plays an important role even up to the present day. Prior to the early 1920s, the thickness of pavement was based purely on experience. The same thickness was used for a section of highway even though widely different soils were encountered . As experience was gained throughout the years, various methods were developed by different agencies for determining the thickness of pavement required . It is neither feasible nor desirable to document all the methods that have been used so far .Only a few typical methods will be cited to indicate the trend.

Some technical terms will be used in this introductory and review chapter . It is presumed that the students using this book as a text are seniors or graduate students who have taken courses in transportation engineering, civil engineering materials, and soil mechanics and are familiar with these terms. In case this is not true, these terms can be ignored for the time being, because most are explained and clarified in later chapters.
