FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT DEFLECTION STUDY IN NORTH CAROLINA

THE PROCEDURE USED FOR CONDUCTING DEFLECTION SURVEYS ON FLEXIBLE-TYPE PAVEMENTS IS DESCRIBED. ALSO, A PROJECT IS DESCRIBED ON WHICH THE DEFLECTION DATA INDICATED THAT THE EXISTING PAVEMENT WAS NOT SUITABLE TO SUPPORT A PROPOSED 3-IN. PLANT-MIX OVERLAY. THEREFORE, THE UPPER 6 IN. OF THE BASE WAS TREATED WITH CEMENT BEFORE PLACING THE PLANT MIX SURFACE. A DEFLECTION SURVEY AFTER CONSTRUCTION SHOWED THE PAVEMENT TO BE SUCCESSFUL.
