STANDARD NOMENCLATURE AND DEFINITIONS FOR PAVEMENT COMPONENTS AND DEFICIENCIES

THE ESTABLISHMENT OF STANDARD NOMENCLATURE AND DEFINITIONS IS RECOMMENDED FOR DESCRIBING PAVEMENT CONDITIONS TO IMPROVE COMMUNICATIONS IN THE PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT PROCESSES. GENERAL TERMS RELATED TO PAVEMENT'S FEATURES, DEFECTS, COMPONENTS, AND CHARACTERISTICS ARE PRESENTED IN THE FIRST CHAPTER. THE RECOMMENDED TERM IS SHOWN AS NOMENCLATURE, AND OTHER COMMONLY USED TERMS ARE SHOWN AS SYNONYMS. THE SAME FORMAT IS USED IN CHAPTERS 2 AND 3 TO CATEGORIZE THE MOST COMMON DEFECTS OF FLEXIBLE AND RIGID PAVEMENTS RESPECTIVELY, EXCEPT THAT DEFICIENCIES ARE ILLUSTRATED WITH PHOTOGRAPHS AND DRAWINGS. THE ILLUSTRATIONS ARE INCLUDED TO ENABLE AN INSPECTOR TO READILY IDENTIFY THE DEFICIENCY AND TO CONVEY HIS FINDINGS TO THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING BASIC PAVEMENT DECISIONS BY ENTERING THE NOMENCLATURE ON THE INSPECTION REPORT.
