Principles The sub base layer is often the main load bearing layer of a pavement It is designed to evenly spread the load of the paving and any traffic thereon to the sub grade below A well constructed sub base will aid drainage and prevent settlement and channelisation the phenomenon common on cheap installations of block paving where two ruts develop in the paving

This product is fully certified according to the Specification for Highway Works This is the most widely used sub base where less fines are required MOT Type 3 also known as DOT Type 3 after the Department of Transport DOT specification for granular sub base material and is also the most widely used approved sub base where SUDS Sustainable

The aggregate base layers serve a variety of purposes including reducing the stress applied to the subgrade layer and providing drainage for the pavement structure The granular base layer is directly below the pavement surface and acts as the load bearing and strengthening component of

Sub Base course The sub base course is the layer of material beneath the base course and the primary functions are to provide structural support improve drainage and reduce the intrusion of fines from the sub grade in the pavement structure If the base course is open graded then the sub base course with more fines can serve as a filler

Apr 08 2013 · The grade 1 aggregates having size of 90 mm to 40 mm are preferred for the sub base material and grade 2 for the base and grade 1 for the surface course However if we only use the WBM as the surface course it gets deteriorated fast due to abrasion with the traffic so bituminous surfacing over the WBM is general practice

The roadway is the paved or otherwise improved portion of a public highway sub grade Work zone safety and traffic control are extremely important Maintenance employees After the cut is made and the defective pavement and or base material is removed level and compact the base material This will make an adequate foundation for the

Highway Pavement Layers Functions Types Defects Rigid and Flexible Pavements Pavement design in general consists of determining the thickness of the pavement or of the several layers of which it is composed in order to resist the wheel loads of the traffic and transmit them safely on to

Amendment – February 2016 3 Volume 1 Series 700 Specification for Highway Works Road Pavements – General 4 02 16 For checking compliance with sub Clause 2 of this Clause measurements of the surface levels of all courses will be taken on a grid of points located as described in

Soil Compaction Soil compaction is defined as the method of mechanically increasing the density of soil In construction this is a significant part of the building process If performed improperly settlement of the soil could occur and result in unnecessary maintenance costs

1 Subgrade is the foundation of the road thus its the lowest and most important component of road structure 2 SUB BASE Consists of a Upper Base Courseb Sub or Lower Base Course If natural surface is above the formation level then the surface is cut down to proposed sub grade surface If natural surface is below the formation level then the sub grade will be above the

the sub base is adequate if the subgrade has a CBR value of 6 Average pavement bulk density 2250 kg m³ P I of subgrade soil 10 The suction S at which a subgrade soil of P I 10 has a CBR value of 6 is from Fig 1 equivalent to 1 35 m of water

without subgrade compaction control and without sub bases These old pavements were still in excellent condition where the subgrade was naturally uniform Distress is limited to cut fill transitions and other locations where there are abrupt changes in subgrade and mois ture conditions Most highway pavements have subbases and were built

Subbase Course The layer between the base course and subgrade It functions primarily as structural support but it can also minimize the intrusion of fines from the subgrade into the pavement structure and improve drainage The subbase generally consists of lower quality materials than the base course but better than the subgrade soils A

Opinions differ as to what makes the best driveway mix In general driveway mixes should be designed with more asphalt binder and less air voids than highway mixes The aggregate structure is where opinions differ Many experts prefer that driveway surface mix have a finer gradation than highway mix

RD GN 042 Pavement Design for Carriageway Construction Page 4 of 42 1 INTRODUCTION This set of guidance notes is intended to serve as a comprehensive reference for highway practitioners on the design of carriageway pavements in Hong Kong It lays down the general principles and technical aspects to be considered while

Subgrades are commonly compacted before the construction of a road pavement or railway track and are sometimes stabilized by the addition of asphalt lime portland cement or other modifiers The subgrade is the foundation of the pavement structure on which the subbase is laid down The load bearing strength of subgrade is measured by

Mechanistically this configuration provides a stronger reaction platform than unbound subgrades or sub bases allowing increased granular base compaction during construction and it also has the potential to take advantage of the compressive stresses induced in the granular aggregate base owing to the presence of the stiff underlying layer
