Design criteria as per IRC

 

The flexible pavements has been modeled as a three layer structure and stresses and strains at critical locations have been computed using the linear elastic model. To give proper consideration to the aspects of performance, the following three types of pavement distress resulting from repeated (cyclic) application of traffic loads are considered:

 

vertical compressive strain at the top of the sub-grade which can cause sub-grade deformation resulting in permanent deformation at the pavement surface.

 

horizontal tensile strain or stress at the bottom of the bituminous layer which can cause fracture of the bituminous layer.

 

pavement  deformation  within  the  bituminous  layer.

 

While the permanent deformation within the bituminous layer can be controlled by meeting the mix design requirements, thickness of granular and bituminous layers are selected using the analytical design approach so that strains at the critical points are within the allowable limits. For calculating tensile strains at the bottom of the bituminous layer, the stiffness of dense bituminous macadam (DBM) layer with 60/70 bitumen has been used in the analysis.

 

Failure  Criteria

 

A and B are the critical locations for tensile strains ( t ). Maximum value of the strain is adopted for design. C is the critical location for the vertical subgrade strain ( z ) since the maximum value of the ( z ) occurs mostly at C.

 

Fatigue  Criteria:

 

Bituminous surfacings of pavements display flexural fatigue cracking if the tensile strain at the bottom of the bituminous layer is beyond certain limit. The relation between the fatigue life of the pavement and the tensile strain in the bottom of the bituminous layer was obtained as


in which, Nf is the allowable number of load repetitions to control fatigue cracking and E is the Elastic modulus of bituminous layer. The use of equation 28.1 would result in fatigue cracking of 20% of the total area.

 

Rutting Criteria

The  allowable number  of  load  repetitions  to  control  permanent  deformation  can  be  expressed as
