OBJECTIVE

Student gains knowledge on various IRC guidelines for designing flexible and rigid pavements. Further, he/she will be in a position to assess quality and serviceability conditions of roads.

 

UNIT I             TYPE OF PAVEMENT AND STRESS DISTRIBUTION ON LAYERED SYSTEM

9

Introduction - Pavement as layered structure - Pavement types - flexible and rigid -Stress and deflections in pavements under repeated loading

 

UNIT II            DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS                                                                 9

Flexible  pavement  design  -  Empirical  -  Semi  empirical  and  theoretical  Methods  -  Design procedure as per latest IRC guidelines Design and specification of rural roads

 

UNIT III           DESIGN OF RIGID PAVEMENTS                                                                         9

Cement concrete pavements - Modified Westergard approach - Design procedure as per latest

IRC guidelines - Joints in rigid pavements - Concrete roads and their scope in India.


UNIT IV          PERFORMANCE EVALUATION AND MAINTENANCE                                      9

Pavement Evaluation [Condition and evaluation surveys (Surface Appearance, Cracks, Patches And Pot Holes, Undulations, Ravelling, Roughness, Skid Resistance), Structural Evaluation By Deflection Measurements, Present Serviceability Index]

Pavement maintenance. [IRC Recommendations Only]

 

UNIT V           STABILISATION OF PAVEMENTS                                                                      9

Stabilisation with special reference to highway pavements - Choice of stabilisers -Testing and field control Stabilisation for rural roads in India -use of Geosynthetics (geotextiles & geogrids) in roads.
