CBR values, Flexible Pavements


Transportation contributes to the economical, industrial and social development of any country. There are different modes of transportation among which the mode of Transportation by roads has been popular since ages as it is the only mode which gives maximum service to all the classes of people. A Pavement is considered as a durable surface material laid down on an area intended to sustain vehicular or foot traffic. A pavement is said to be good when it is stable and Non-yielding to allow heavy wheel loads of traffic to move with least possible rolling resistance .in order to provide such a stable and even surface for traffic, a Road way is provided with a suitably designed and constructed pavement surface. In this work, an effort has been made in examining the different layers involved in a typical rigid and flexible pavement and have designed the pavement as per the IRC Specifications. The project includes all the required Field and Laboratory tests. The results regarding CBR values, aggregate properties and all other necessary data have been presented in the work.
