CE1013 PAVEMENT ENGINEERING 3 0 0 100


OBJECTIVE
Student gains knowledge on various IRC guidelines for designing rigid and flexible pavements. Further, he/she will be in a position to assess quality and serviceability conditions of roads.

1. TYPE OF PAVEMENT AND STRESS DISTRIBUTION ON LAYERED SYSTEM 9
Introduction - Pavement as layered structure - Pavement types - rigid and flexible -
Stress and deflections in pavements under repeated loading

2. DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS 9
Flexible pavement design - Empirical - Semi empirical and theoretical Methods - Design procedure as per latest IRC guidelines – Design and specification of rural roads

3. DESIGN OF RIGID PAVEMENTS 9
Cement concrete pavements - Modified Westergard approach - Design procedure as per latest IRC guidelines - Concrete roads and their scope in India.

4. PERFORMANCE EVALUATION AND MAINTENANCE 9
Pavement Evaluation [Condition and evaluation surveys (Surface Appearance, Cracks, Patches And Pot Holes, Undulations, Ravelling, Roughness, Skid Resistance), Structural Evaluation By Deflection Measurements, Present Serviceability Index]
Pavement maintenance. [IRC Recommendations Only]

5. STABILISATION OF PAVEMENTS 8
Stabilisation with special reference to highway pavements - Choice of stabilisers -Testing and field control –Stabilisation for rural roads in India -use of Geosynthetics (geotextiles & geogrids) in roads.
