pavement thickness design Atj 5/85

Design Procedure:
1.

Estimate Vo = PLH x (1/2) x 365 x (Pc/100)

2.

Determine Vc= Vo [(1 + r)n - 1] / r

3.

Convert to ESA, ESA = Vc x e (Table 4.1 or e =


2.52, page 79)

4.

Check capacity (Table 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, page 79, 80)

5.

Determine Sub-grade CBR

6.

Determine TA from nomograph

7.

Calculate thickness for each layer (Table 4.5, 4.7,


7.8, page 81)
TA = SN = a1D1 + a2 D2 + ... + anDn (page 80)

8.

Formulae:
Vx = Vi (1 + r)x
V2018 = V2015 (1 + r) 3

V0 = ADT x 365 x (Pc/100) x Directional Split


Vc = V0 [(1 + r)

- 1] / r

ESA = Vc x e

CBRm = [(h1CBR11/3 + h2CBR21/3 +


hnCBRn1/3) / (1000)]3

Subgrade Modulus = 165-(1.645*27) =


120.6 MPa
Therefore, (165+120.6)/2 = 142.8 MPa
