Recommended Design Method for Flexible Pavements in Virginia

Report No: 71-R26

Published in 1972

About the report:

The sophisticated design techniques developed from the AASHO Road Test results and other investigations necessitated modification of the charts used for design of flexible pavements in Virginia. The increased knowledge of the materials now used in the construction of flexible pavements in Virginia (e. go, cement treated aggregate, soil cement, and soil lime) also needed to be properly incorporated in the design method. Investigations have been carried out and a new design method has been determined. While incorporating the latest design techniques and use of the materials discussed above, this method still permits present construction practices.
