Flexible Pavement



The objective of this project is to provide a pavement Design with sufficient information so that the necessary input data can be developed and proper engineering principles applied to design a new flexible pavement. Our main Moto is Design road on which all the tests and experiments are done regarding this project. The design is based on Indian Road Congress “Guide Line for Design of Flexible Pavements.”  These were based on CBR Method. In this approach, the pavement thickness is related to the cumulative Number of standard axles to be carried out for different sub grade strengths. With the rapid growth of traffic, the pavements are required to be design for heavy volume of traffic of the order of 150 Million Standard Axles (MSA). In this Guidelines the curve were cater up to 150 (MSA). The IRC has developed sub group i.e. Design chart an catalogue. This enables mathematical modelling of the pavement structure layer. There are so many methods of Pavement Design but that methods are theoretical. The IRC design criteria are based on CBR method and Traffic. So this enables us to design the pavement practically. The design is based on IRC37-2001. In this project we discussed the test and procedure for designing the flexible pavement.
