MANUAL FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS

HANDBOEK ASFALTVERHARDINGEN

This loose-leaf manual presents a simple, step by step method for designing flexible pavements according to Dutch regulations. The method concerns both layer thickness of the pavements and the choice of bituminous mixtures. Three design conditions are distinguished: new construction, maintenance, and reconstruction of flexible pavements. For each of these conditions a step by step scheme is presented resulting in an appropriate standard pavement structure for a specific situation. For these standard pavement structures bituminous mixtures as described in the Dutch "RAW Standaard 1995" are applied. Other matters that are discussed are: (a) building materials, bituminous mixtures and their properties; and (b) management and maintenance aspects, such as rational road management, matters concerning the working conditions, environmental aspects, liability for damage and injury, small-scale and large-scale road maintenance.
