10.3 design method the required gravel thickness shall be determined as follows: 1. determine the minimum thickness necessary to avoid excessive compressive strain in the subgrade (d1). 2. determine the extra thickness needed to compensate for the gravel loss under traffic during the period between regravelling operations (d2). 3.

a. function of sub base in road cross section. it enables traffic stresses to be reduced to acceptable levels in sub-grade in the road cross section so that excessive deformation is prevented. it acts as a working plate form for the construction of upper pavement layers. acts as a drainage layer, by protecting the sub grade from wetting up.
the thickness is measured by making holes into the compacted layer at three points at each cross-section; two on the sides and one at the center. the average thickness so measured is taken as the thickness of the compacted layer.
cross section. sections having no curbs and a wide depressed median are particularly well suited for this design. with a crowned section, cross slopes should not exceed 2% because the rollover effect, when changing lanes, is then 4%. “rollover” is the algebraic difference between the two slopes. roadways that slope in only one direction are
sidewalk widths of 8 ft [2440 mm] or more may be appropriate in commercial areas, along school routes, and other areas with concentrated pedestrian traffic. where necessary to cross a driveway while maintaining the maximum 2 percent cross slope, the sidewalk width may

pavement design in road construction. by kiran biradar. introduction. pavement design is the major component in the road construction. nearly one-third or one-half of the total cost of construction , so careful consideration should be taken in design of pavement.

for purposes of this design procedure, the following are considered to be minimum practical thicknesses that are to be applied to each pavement layer: surface 45 mm (0.15 foot) base 100mm (0.35 foot) (atb, atpb, utb) subbase 100mm (0.35 foot) ((if used) or a minimum of 2 times the maximum particle size.)

(sddot, 2014). lvrs generally have thinner surface thicknesses than roads designed for greater traffic volumes. therefore, in order for a pavement to adequately support traffic, it must be supported by its foundation, which is the base course, subbase, and subgrade. a pavement cross-section with the typical layer materials is shown in figure 1.1.
