STRUCTURAL DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS

This paper illustrates existing and potential pavement design (thickness selection) procedures for thick lift asphalt concrete sections resting directly on prepared subgrades. Four existing design procedures - namely (1) that described in AASHO interim guide, and those of (2) the state of California, (3) the Asphalt Institute, and (4) Shell, have been selected as representing a cross-section of methods which can be used to design pavements of this type. In addition, a procedure utilizing recent research developments, and based on concepts embodied in the Shell design procedure is also presented to illustrate how research can be implemented to develop solutions for design situations beyond the scope of procedures such as those developed by AASHO, the state of California, and the Asphalt Institute. /TRRL/
