The following information and resources relating to Pavement Analysis and Design include, include
Publications, Software and
FHWA RD-76-82 - An Occurrence and Distribution Survey of Expansive Materials in
the United States by Physiographic Areas. This publication includes the geology,
categorization, classification, evironmental considerations and distribution in the
continental U.S. of expansive rocks and soil.
RD-97-142, 143, 144, and 00-157 - Durability of Geosynthetics for Highway
Applications. This research document was intended to predict long-term strength loss of
geosynthetic tensile capacity, primarily for mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining
walls, reinforced soil slopes and foundation applications.
TM 5-852-4 - Arctic and Subarctic Construction - Foundations for Structures.
The main topics are site investigations, foundation design, construction considerations and
monitoring for structures in cold weather. Includes material considerations, excavation,
backfill, inspection, slope stability, retaining walls, creep and bearing capacity.
TM 5-852-3 - Arctic and Subarctic Construction, Runway and Road Design
USACE TM 5-822-12
- Design of Aggregate Surfaced Roads and Airfields
TM 5-818-8 - Engineering Use of Geotextiles

- Use of Geogrids in Pavement Construction. Manual for utilizing geogrids
in all types of flexible road and airfield design. Includes design examples for gravel and
flexible pavement roadways.
References to Pavement Analysis in other Publications
Your local state Department of Transportation should have excellent literature for
pavement analysis and design.
Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, Cold Climate Utilities Manual, Canadian Society for Civil Engineering,
Montreal, 1986. An in-depth publication concerning water facilities. Also has excellent information
pertaining to foundations, roadways, runways, dams, earthwork and soil properties.
Phukan, Arvind, Frozen Ground Engineering, Prentice Hall, Inc.,
Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, 1985. This publication has information on soil classifications including a
frost susceptibility soil classification, ice descriptions, as well as physical, mechanical and thermal properties of frozen soils. Drilling, sampling and
testing are discussed. This book also includes a foundation design philosophy, and analysis of thaw settlement, shallow foundations, pile foundations,
roadways, airfields, utility systems, and slope stability.
The best software for flexible or rigid pavement analysis and design may be offered by your
State Department of Transportation.
You may always browse on your local State Department of Transportation
website for substantial technical guidance pertaining to pavement analysis and design.
