Pavement Analysis



The following information and resources relating to Pavement Analysis and Design include, include Publications, Software and Technical Guidance


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.

FHWA 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.

USACE 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.

USACE TM 5-852-3 - Arctic and Subarctic Construction, Runway and Road Design

USACE TM 5-822-12 - Design of Aggregate Surfaced Roads and Airfields

USACE TM 5-818-8 - Engineering Use of Geotextiles

USACE TM 5-822-5 - Pavement Design for Roads, Streets, Walks and Open Storage Areas

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.
