FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS. WORKING DAYS ON ROAD ENGINEERING 1990, PROCEEDINGS OF A CONFERENCE HELD IN EDE, THE NETHERLANDS, MAY 9-10, 1990. PART 1

FUNCTIONELE EISEN VOOR ASFALTVERHARDINGEN

This article has been established as part of the activities of the DWW-project group "Quality Control for Road Constructions". A method is proposed according to which the road quality is defined in terms of acknowledged quality criteria (high order functions), by breaking it down into measurable functions, for which technical requirements can be formulated. Two examples of high order functions are discussed, namely the safety function and the durability function. It is shown that with the present state of knowledge, the safety function can be broken down completely into measurable functions. In contrast, this is not possible with the durability function. The practical consequence to assure the desired durability of roads is that requirements for technical compositions of granular base materials and flexible pavement materials, as well as requirements for physical and chemical properties of the building materials are needed. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 836802. (Author/TRRL)
