Pavement analysis for local design and maintenance applications

This paper corresponds to research report arr no 31 of the Australian Road Research Board. It puts forward the view that the collection and analysis of data on pavement performance is an important part of developing local experience and adapting the broad principles of pavement design and maintenance to specific terrain, soil and moisture environment conditions within a local region. The use of simple techniques for detection of the probable causes of abnormally good or poor pavement performance is described and illustrated by reference to studies of selected pavements. A review of Australian and overseas literature suggests standards for judgement of measured parameters. The particular problem of classification of the local pavement moisture environment is discussed and the influence of variations in local moisture environment on pavement thickness requirements is illustrated for three different regional climates (a).
