GUIDELINES FOR STRENGTHENING OF CITY STREETS

KATUJEN VAHVISTAMISTA JA PERUSPARANTAMISTA KOSKEVAT OHJEET

This publication presents guidelines for strengthening (increasing the bearing capacity) of the streets. Where applicable, they can also be used for the same purpose on main roads. The design procedure can briefly be described as follows: - first a visual method is given by means of which the streets can be rated as to their degree of damage. The thickness design can be made by means of a graph, which gives the thickness of an asphalt concrete layer needed to increase the measured e2-value to the desired design value. This full-depth asphalt layer can be converted to any arbitrary multi-layer structure by means of the common material coefficients. As an alternative method the analytical solution by odemark is briefly described. The grounds for the choice between different alternative solutions are briefly described, as are the principles for economic calculations. (TRRL)
