TWO URBAN PAVEMENT REHABILITATION CASE STUDIES IN WHICH BITUMINOUS BASES WERE FOUND TO BE THE OPTIMUM SOLUTION . 5TH CONFERENCE ON ASPHALT PAVEMENTS FOR SOUTHERN AFRICA (CAPSA 89). PROCEEDINGS HELD IN SWAZILAND, 5-9 JUNE, 1989

Pavement rehabilitation can make great in-roads into the limited funds available to most Engineer's Departments of Town Councils. It is therefore especially important that the priorities of such work be correctly determined and that the best design be used that takes into account factors, such as the existing pavement properties, the expected traffic, environmental effects and practical implementation problems. This paper presents two case studies of pavement rehabilitation design through a systematic and iterative analysis of the total situation in the pavement management context. The simple tools used and the graphical methods of presenting their results provides a picture of the problem that allows engineering, practical and financial issues to be easily weighed up against one another. In both cases the pavements with bituminous bases were found to be preferred above equivalent pavements with granular bases.(A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 828827.
