PAVEMENT DESIGN FOR ROADS, STREETS, AND OPEN STORAGE AREAS, ELASTIC LAYERED METHODS
|Publication Date:||16 January 2004|
The elastic layered procedure is used to determine thickness requirements of flexible and rigid pavement structures subject to vehicular traffic loads. This manual treats the thickness design of concrete pavements (both plain and reinforced), conventional flexible pavements, bituminous concrete pavements, and flexible pavements with stabilized layers. Other aspects of design, such as the preliminary investigation, mix design, material requirements, joints, overlays, reinforced concrete pavements, and the requirements for compaction and frost considerations are described in TM 5-822-5/AFM 88-7, Chap. 3.
This manual provides an elastic layered method for the thickness design of pavements for roads, streets, walks, and open storage areas at US Army and Air Force installations for the loadings and conditions set forth herein.
