oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - The development of an equation for the strength-balance of road pavement structures

Volume 31, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



An urgent need for a function that would descriptionbe the strength/depth relationship of a road pavement and thus enable the classification of the various structural compositions encountered was recognized and investigated In the early seventies. Subsequently a nest of curves called the pavement strength-balance curves was developed, which greatly enhanced the understanding of pavement behaviour and largely reduced the possibility of Injudicious pavement composition.
