A northbound direction on an interstate highway consists of four lanes of flexible pavement. It is conservatively designed with a 10-inch sand-mix asphaltic surface, 10-crushed stone base, and a 10-inch crushed-stone subbase (all drainage coefficients are 1.0). The subgrade CBR is 3, the overall standard deviation is 0.4, and the reliability is 95%. The initial PSI is 4.6 and the final PSI is 2.5. Daily total northbound road traffic consists of 51,000 cars (each with two 2-kip single axles), 840 buses (each with two 20-kip single axles), and 1,000 heavy vehicles (each with one 12-kip single axle and two 34-kip tandem axles). How many years was this pavement designed to last?
A flexible pavement is designed to last 10 years to withstand truck traffic that consists only of trucks with two 18-kip single axles. The pavement is designed for a soil CBR of 10, an initial PSI of 5.0, a TSI of 2.5, an overall standard deviation of 0.40 and a reliability of 90%, and the structural number was determined to be 6. On one section of this roadway, beneath an underpass, an engineer uses an 8-inch rigid pavement in an attempt to have it last longer before resurfacing. How many years will this rigid-pavement section last? (Given the same traffic conditions, modulus of rupture = 800 lb/in2, modulus of elasticity = 5,000,000 lb/in2, load transfer coefficient of 3.0 and drainage coefficient of 1.0.).
A flexible pavement was designed for the following daily traffic with a 12-year design life: 1300 single axles at 8,000 lb each, 900 tandem axles at 15,000 lb each, 20 single axles at 40,000 lb each, and 200 tandem axles at 40,000 lb each. The highway was designed with 4 inches of hot-mix asphalt (HMA) wearing surface, 4 inches of hot-mix asphaltic base, and 8 inches of crushed stone subbase. The reliability was 70%, overall standard deviation was 0.5, ¨PSI was 2.0 (with a TSI of 2.5), and all drainage coefficients were 1.0. What was the soil resilient modulus of the subgrade used in design?
