Unit 1 AGGREGATES Total views (2)  
Aggregates form the major portion of pavement structure and they are the prime materials used in pavement construction. Aggregates not only have to bear stresses occurring within the pavement due to the wheel loads, but also have to resist the wearing due to abrasion action by traffic as well as the weathering agents on the surface course.

Unit 2 BITUMEN AND TAR Total views (0)  
Bitumen is a non-crystalline viscous material black or dark brown in colour which is substantially soluble in carbon disulfide (CS2) and carbon tetra chloride (CCl4), possessing adhesive and water proofing qualities. It consists of hydrocarbons comprising of 80% carbon and 15% hydrogen and the remaining being oxygen, sulphur, nitrogen and traces of various other metals.

Unit 3 BITUMINOUS EMULSIONS AND CUTBACK Total views (0)  
Paving grade bitumen binders used in the construction of pavement layers are in semi-solid state at normal atmospheric temperature. For good coating of aggregates bituminous binders have to be brought to a fluid state by heating before application. During lack of heating facilities, Emulsions & Cutback overcome this problem as they can flow readily at atmospheric temperature and can also be applie......

Unit 6 SUBGRADE Total views (0)  
The subgrade is earth graded to the desired elevation. The principal function of subgrade stabilization is to provide a stable grade for subsequent construction. In highway engineering, subgrade is the native material underneath a constructed road or the lower most layer of a highway pavement. It is also called formation level. Subgrades are commonly compacted before the construction of a road, ......

Unit 7 FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT Total views (2)  
Flexible pavements will transmit wheel load stresses to the lower layers by grain-to-grain transfer through the points of contact in the granular structure. The wheel load acting on the pavement will be distributed to a wider area, and the stress decreases with the depth. Taking advantage of these stress distribution characteristic, flexible pavements normally has many layers. Hence, the design of......
