MANAGEMENT OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS: A FEW POINTS ON DESIGN AND MAINTENANCE

Flexible pavements are designed in India based on CBR value of subgrade soils. For estimating the values of CBR of subgrade soil, the soil samples are collected in the field and brought to the laboratory. CBR test is conducted at specified water content. A remoulded soil test specimen is prepared at the desired water content or at OMC and soaked in water for 96 hours then the test is conducted. This paper includes models to compute CBR values from soil classification test data, deficiencies in existing road pavements, data base, and case studies.
