Bina Nusantara University 4 Pavement Classification Classification : 1.Flexible Pavement 2.Rigid Pavement 3.Composite
Bina Nusantara University 5 Flexible Pavement Those which are surfaced with bituminous / asphalt materials. These types of pavements are called "flexible" since the total pavement structure bends or deflects due to traffic loads. A flexible pavement structure is generally composed of several layers of materials which can accommodate this "flexing".

Bina Nusantara University 8 Rigid Pavement Rigid pavements. Those which are surfaced with portland cement concrete (PCC). These types of pavements are called "rigid" because they are substantially stiffer than flexible pavements due to PCC's high stiffness.

Bina Nusantara University 21 Terms – Flexible W 18 (loading) –Predicted number of ESALs over the pavement’s life. SN (structural number) –Abstract number expressing structural strength –SN = a 1 D 1 + a 2 D 2 m 2 + a 3 D 3 m 3 + … ΔPSI (change in present serviceability index) –Change in serviceability index over the useful pavement life –Typically from 1.5 to 3.0 M R (subgrade resilient modulus) –Typically from 3,000 to 30,000 psi (10,000 psi is pretty good)
Bina Nusantara University 22 Terms – Rigid D (slab depth) –Abstract number expressing structural strength –SN = a 1 D 1 + a 2 D 2 m 2 + a 3 D 3 m 3 + … S’ c (PCC modulus of rupture) –A measure of PCC flexural strength –Usually between 600 and 850 psi C d (drainage coefficient) –Relative loss of strength due to drainage characteristics and the total time it is exposed to near-saturated conditions –Usually taken as 1.0
Bina Nusantara University 23 Terms – Rigid J (load transfer coefficient) –Accounts for load transfer efficiency –Lower J-factors = better load transfer –Between 3.8 (undoweled JPCP) and 2.3 (CRCP with tied shoulders) E c (PCC elastic modulus) –4,000,000 psi is a good estimate k (modulus of subgrade reaction) –Estimates the support of the PCC slab by the underlying layers –Usually between 50 and 1000 psi/inch
Bina Nusantara University 24 Pavement design for Rigid Pavement The following input variables are needed for the AASHTO rigid pavement design procedure: ¨ 28-day Concrete Modulus of Rupture, psi¨ 28-day Concrete Elastic Modulus, psi¨ Effective Modulus of Subbase/Subgrade Reaction, pci¨ Serviceability Indices ¨ Load Transfer Coefficient ¨ Drainage Coefficient ¨ Overall Standard Deviation ¨ Reliability, %¨ Design Traffic, 18-kip Equivalanet Single Axle Load (SEAL).
Bina Nusantara University 25 Pavement design for Rigid Pavement 28-day Concrete Modulus of Rupture, Mr The Mr of concrete is a measure of the flexural strength of the concrete as determined by breaking concrete beam test specimens. A Mr of 620 psi at 28 days should be used with the current statewide specification for concrete pavement design. If the Engineer selects an alternate value for Mr, then it must be documented with an explanation.
Bina Nusantara University 26 Pavement design for Rigid Pavement 28-day Concrete Elastic Modulus Elastic modulus of concrete is an indication of concrete stiffness. It varies depending on the coarse aggregate type used in the concrete. Although the value selected for pavement design could be different from the actual values, the elastic modulus does not have a significant effect on the computed slab thickness. A modulus of 5,000,000 psi should be used for pavement design. The use of a different value must be documented with an explanation.
Bina Nusantara University 27 Pavement design for Rigid Pavement Effective Modulus of Subbase/Subgrade Reaction: k-value The AASHTO guide allows pavement designers to take into account the structural benefits of all layers under the concrete slab. It also allows designers to consider the effect of loss of support of the underlying material due to erosion or deterioration. The slab support is characterized by the modulus of subgrade/ sub base reaction, otherwise known as the k-value. It can be measured in the field by applying a load equal to 10 psi on the subgrade/subbase combination using a 30-inch diameter steel plate. The k- value is then calculated by dividing 10 psi by the measured deflection (in inches) of the layers under the plate.
Bina Nusantara University 28 Pavement design for Rigid Pavement Serviceability Indices For concrete pavement design, the difference between the initial and terminal serviceability is an important factor. An initial serviceability value of 4.5 and a terminal serviceability value of 2.5 are to be used in the procedure, which results in a difference of 2.0. Different values, if used, must be documented and justified.
Bina Nusantara University 29 Pavement design for Rigid Pavement Load Transfer Coefficient The load transfer coefficient is used to incorporate the effect of dowels, reinforcing steel, tied shoulders, and tied curb and gutter on reducing the stress in the concrete slab due to traffic loading. The coefficients recommended in the AASHTO Guide were based on findings from the AASHO Road Test.
Bina Nusantara University 30 Pavement design for Rigid Pavement Drainage Coefficient The drainage coefficient characterizes the quality of drainage of the sub base layers under the concrete slab. Good draining pavement structures do not give water the chance to saturate the subbase and subgrade; thus, pumping is not as likely to occur.
Bina Nusantara University 31 Pavement design for Rigid Pavement Reliability, % The reliability value represents a " safety factor," with higher reliabilities representing pavement structures with less chance of failure. The AASHTO Guide recommends values ranging from 50% to 99.9%, depending on the functional classification and the location (urban vs. rural) of the roadway. If the Engineer decides to use a different value, then it must be documented and justified
