DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT WITH METHOD OF EQUIVALENT PLATE

In addition to these three typical structures of flexible, semi-rigid and all-asphalt pavements, both these methods were used for this time being for calculating another 15 types of structures at different bearing capacities of the subgrade under different temperatures and for various loading cases, i.e., for 174 individual cases totally. In spite of this it is difficult to take an unambiguous opinion which of the methods is closer to the reality as the comparison with the real structures in situ could not be carried out until now. It is possible to deduce that somewhat higher tensile stresses in the base layers better reflect the dynamic effects of the real loads caused by heavy trucks.
