A GUIDE TO THE STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE AND RIGID PAVEMENTS IN CANADA

DESIGN METHODS FOR FLEXIBLE AND RIGID PAVEMENTS SUGGESTED WERE BASED LARGELY ON INVESTIGATIONS AND ANALYSES OF THE CANADIAN GOOD ROADS ASSOCIATION PAVEMENT DESIGN AND EVALUATION COMMITTEE FROM NOVEMBER 1958 TO MARCH 1965. DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE OF THOUSANDS OF MILES OF HIGHWAY PAVEMENT THROUGHOUT CANADA WERE STUDIED. DATA FROM MANY OTHER SOURCES, SUCH AS THE AASHO ROAD TEST, WERE ALSO USED TO SUPPLEMENT AND CORROBORATE FINDINGS. METHODS DISCUSSED WERE SUCCESSFULLY USED IN DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF MANY CANADIAN HIGHWAY PAVEMENTS IN THE PAST THREE YEARS. METHODS WERE SUGGESTED FOR STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF CONVENTIONAL FLEXIBLE AND RIGID PAVEMENTS FOR ROADS WITH RURAL CROSS- SECTIONS WHICH WILL, WITHIN 10 YEARS AFTER CONSTRUCTION, HAVE ANNUAL AVERAGE DAILY TRAFFIC VOLUMES OF 1000 OR MORE VEHICLES PER LANE INCLUDING AT LEAST 10% TRUCKS AND BUSES.
