USE OF EXPLORATORY BORING DATA ON FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS

EXPLOITATION DE SONDAGES REALISES DANS LES CHAUSSEES SOUPLES

SINCE 1970, STRENGTHENING STUDIES WERE CONDUCTED ON 12000 KM OF ROADS, WHICH REPRESENTS APPROXIMATELY 10000 BORE HOLES IN FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS. THE AIM OF THE PROJECT IS TO USE THE DATA OBTAINED AND TO STUDY THE DIFFERENT CORRELATIONS WHICH CAN EXIST BETWEEN THE THICKNESS OF THE PAVEMENT AND DEFLECTIONS, STATE OF THE PAVEMENT, THICKNESS OF STRENGTHENING, ETC., WITH A VIEW TO TAKING THEM INTO ACCOUNT IN THE STRENGTHENING DESIGN METHOD AND TO COMPARING THEM WITH RESULTS OBTAINED WITH A COMPUTER PROGRAM. THIS IS BEING CARRIED OUT BY PUTTING THE DATA COLLECTED ON MECANOGRAPHIC FICHES IN ORDER TO USE A COMPUTER.
