This recently commenced research project will contribute to the development of rational criteria for the selection of road design standards by investigating the influence of terrain type and level and composition of traffic on the appropriateness of different design standards for various categories of rural roads. A case study approach to the examination of six different terrain bands will make use of computer-aided route selection across a broad set of combinations of design standards, road cross - sections and traffic conditions. The project will also seek to develop terrain classification indices to facilitate application of the study results (a).

For proof of the material suitability the test methods of the instruction sheet for testing aggregates used in road construction by the bast are used. These differ in part from the stone testing standards. When using mineral materials as aggregates for concrete din 4226 applies.
