SIMPLIFIED STRUCTURAL ANALYSES OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS FOR SECONDARY ROADS BASED ON ILLI-PAVE

A procedure based on the results of a stress-dependent finite-element computer model and used to calculates the resilient response parameters of conventional flexible pavements subjected to traffic loads is presented. Flexible pavements composed either of a granular based protected by a surface treatment or of an asphalt-concrete surface layer and a granular based are considered. Asphalt-concrete surface-layer thickness, based thickness, modulus of elasticity of the asphalt concrete, and subgrade resilient modulus at the break point (the input data required to calculate the resilient response parameters) are discussed. The basis of a flexible pavement design process for secondary roads is proposed. (Author)
