PAVEMENT DESIGN FOR TRANSPORT AREAS WITHIN HEAVY INDUSTRY, HARBOURS, TERMINALS AND AIRPORTS

DIMENSIONERING AV VAEGOEVERBYGGNADER FOER TRANSPORTYTOR INOM TUNG INDUSTRI, HAMNAR, TERMINAIER OCH FLYGFAELT

An investigation was carried out with the aim of drawing up guidelines and directions for design of heavy duty road pavements for industrial plants and harbours, both for transportation areas and storage areas. This report includes a relatively detailed study of the major factors used in analytical pavement design, e.g. vehicles, traffic, ground conditions, ground water, climate, properties of materials in formation and pavement and freeze-thaw problems. The pavement design is carried out in two stages. Stage 1 implies design with regard to frost susceptibility, primarily the risk for considerable and unequal frost heave. Based on the requirements of the largest frost heave allowed, the necessary pavement thickness is calculated as a function of ground water conditions, climate and the frost susceptibility of the formation. A simple table is used for this calculation. Stage 2 implies pavement design with regard to traffic load according to an analytical design procedure based on the theory of elasticity. A large number of design diagrams are presented, which makes it possible to solve design problems even if a computer is not available. The report finally presents the results from a limited enquiry to Swedish heavy industries and harbours concerning their vehicles, traffic and transport areas. /TRRL/
