WYOMING THICKNESS DESIGN FOR FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT

REVISIONS TO THE WYOMING PAVEMENT DESIGN PROCEDURES ARE BASED ON THE AASHO ROAD TEST AND RECOMMENDATIONS MADE ARE BASED ON THE AASHO INTERIM DESIGN GUIDE. THE METHODS DEVELOPED DEPEND ON SUCH VARIABLES AS THE SUB-GRADE, TRAFFIC CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS, AND REGIONAL FACTORS. ACCORDING TO THE AUTHOR, THESE METHODS INDICATE A RELATIONSHIP OF TRAFFIC (AXLE LOADS) TO THE PERFORMANCE OF THE PAVEMENT (SERVICEABILITY). IN WYOMING DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS ALSO INCLUDE PROTECTION AGAINST EXPANSIVE SOILS, FROST PROTECTION, AND MOISTURE DENSITY CONTROL. CONSTRUCTION CONTROL OF SPECIFICATIONS AND CONDITIONS ASSUMED IN THE DESIGN PHASE ARE IMPORTANT IN THE FINISHED PRODUCT.
