DESIGN MANUAL FOR ROADS AND BRIDGES. VOL 7, SECTION 2, PART 3. PAVEMENT DESIGN

This part details the materials and thickness to be used for new pavement construction, covering all standard pavement types. It reviews the principles of design which have been used as well as mentioning the cost implications and those environmental considerations which most closely affect pavement design. It does not include the estimation of design traffic (covered in HD 24/94), nor does it cover the design of pavement foundations (see HD 25/94). Amendment no 1 was published in March 1995. It includes revisions to Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4 and 8. Revision to Chapter 2 introduces additional options for flexible composite pavements. An introduction to the use of volume 7 of the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB) is given in HD 23/94 (see IRRD 862769). For abstract of the other standards in this volume see IRRD nos 862770-862771, 862773-862778.
