The purpose of this Design Guide is to present materials that provide a basic knowledge of asphalt pavement design without being too technical. Understanding some of the basic properties of asphalt and aggregates is essential when relating pavement designs to specific conditions and needs. Thickness design tables and construction details are included for various roadway and recreational uses. Pavement management and rehabilitation options are also important considerations. The Design Guide is organized in eight chapters as follows: (1) The Asphalt Advantage; (2) Asphalt and Asphalt Paving Materials; (3) Design Considerations; (4) Thickness Design; (5) Parking Lot Design; (6) Designs for Recreational Uses; (7) Pavement Management; and (8) Rehabilitation. There are five appendices: (A) Pavement Failure Identification; (B) Glossary; (C) Conversion Tables; (D) Publications; and (E) Credits and References.
