DESIGN TO SUBSURFACE DRAINAGE FOR HIGHWAYS

THE STUDY PRESENTS A REALISTIC REVIEW OF THE AVAILABLE KNOWLEDGE ON THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF SUBSURFACE DRAINAGE, AND AN ANALYSIS OF THE COMMON PROBLEMS IN HIGHWAY SUBSURFACE DRAINAGE. QUANTITATIVE APPROACHES TO THE DESIGN OF LONGITUDINAL DRAINS FOR A HIGHWAY WITH PAVED OR UNPAVED SHOULDERS, CROSS DRAINS AT A LOW POINT OF A LONG VERTICAL CURVE, AND LOWERING AND REMOVAL OF WATER IN THE LOCATION OF HIGH WATER TABLES ARE RECOMMENDED, BASED ON SUCCESSFUL APPLICATION IN AGRICULTURAL DRAINAGE. /FHWA/
