PAVEMENT ENGINEERING

 L T P C

3003

COURSE OBJECTIVE:
• Student gains knowledge on various IRC guidelines for designing rigid and flexible pavements. Further, the student will be in a position to assess quality and serviceability conditions of roads.

UNIT I

PAVEMENT MATERIALS AND SUBGRADE ANALYSIS

8

Introduction – Pavement as layered structure – Pavement types -rigid and flexible-Subgrade analysis- Stress and deflections in pavements- Pavement Materials and Testing- Modified Binders.

UNIT II

DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS

10

Flexible pavement design – Advantages and disadvantages -Factors influencing design of flexible pavement, Empirical – Mechanistic empirical and theoretical methods – Design procedure as per IRC guidelines – Design and specification of rural roads.

UNIT III

DESIGN OF RIGID PAVEMENTS

9

Cement concrete pavements Factors influencing CC pavements – Modified Westergaard approach – Design procedure as per IRC guidelines – Concrete roads and their scope in India.

UNIT IV

PAVEMENT CONSTRUCTION, EVALUATION AND MAINTENANCE

10

Construction Techniques practice of flexible and concrete pavement Pavement Evaluation - Causes of distress in rigid and flexible pavements – Evaluation based on Surface Appearance, Cracks, Patches and Pot Holes, Undulations, Raveling, Roughness, Skid Resistance. Structural Evaluation by Deflection Measurements - Pavement Serviceability index, - Pavement maintenance (IRC Recommendations only).

UNIT V

STABILIZATION OF PAVEMENTS

8

Stabilization with special reference to highway pavements – Choice of stabilizers – Testing and field control - Stabilization for rural roads in India – Use of Geosynthetics in roads.
