Poor drainage may bring lack of shear strength, pumping, loss of support, etc. Summary Several factors affecting pavement design were discussed, the most important being wheel load. Since pavements are designed to take moving loads, slow moving loads and static loads can be detrimental to the pavement.   Concrete Pavement Institute in their Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavements manual [3].

Flexible Pavement Drainage Monitoring, Performance, and Stability Abstract.

The current study is a continuation of the study FHWA/IN/JTRP project HPR, “Locating the Drainage Layer for Flexible Pavements”.

In this previous study, three test sections were constructed in a new pavement on a by-pass around Fort Wayne, Indiana Author: Aiwen Feng, Jianfeng Hua and Thomas D. White. Using an appropriate drainage system is one method to remove moisture from pavement structures. The objective of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of flexible pavement drainage systems using currently specified materials to determine if, and when, the drainage system can be safely excluded from the by: 2.

subsurface drainage systems. NCHRP ProjectPerformance of Pavement Subsurface Pavement Drainage, summarized findings on the effectiveness of subsurface drainage on flexible pavements (NCHRP, ). It was found that structural capacity and drainability were key factors in the performance of flexible pavements.

flexible pavement. The flexible pavements may be subdivided into two very general areas: 1. Thin Surfaced Flexible Pavements 2. Semi-Rigid and Stabilized Pavements The thin surfaced flexible pavements may be surfaced with either asphaltic concrete pavement or the surfacing may be single, double or triple surface treatment.

4 Australian Asphalt Pavement Association – If the rutting is as a result of inadequate compaction of the base, proof roll, correct and overlay. § Inadequate strength (stability) in surfacing or base. Remedy: If inadequate stability in surfacing the surface would also show signs of shoving and this mode of failure is covered later.

In rigid pavement free drainage systems for pavements, the primary pore fluid of concern is water. soil water with in the right way.

Highway drainage is an important part for design and construction of highway. In surface drainage, surface water is intercepted and diverted to a natural stream.

If it is not done the surface water causing erosion. In sub surface water drainage, sub surface water is intercepted and disposed of to safe place. Drainage Provisions Drainage problems are frequently a major cause of parking area pavement failures. It is critical to keep water away from the subgrade soil.

If the subgrade becomes saturated, it will lose strength and stability, making the overlying pavement structure susceptible to breakup under imposed loads.

Drainage provisions must be. stresses over the subgrade than in unreinforced flexible pavements. The improved performance of the pavement due to geosynthetic reinforcement has been attributed to three mechanisms: (1) lateral restraint, (2) increased bearing capacity, and (3) tensioned membrane effect.

The primary mechanism associated with the reinforcement function for. Pavement performance is strongly influenced by the underlying soil layers, particularly with respect to stability, bearing strength, consolidation over time, and moisture susceptibility. Frequently one or more layers are placed between the soil subgrade and the pavement.

In flexible or asphalt pavements, the layer directly under the pavement. Pavement structure types. Flexible (HMA) and rigid (JPCP). • Design period. Fifty years for both flexible and rigid pavement since this is consistent with the current design policy.

The pavement base and shoulders are expected to perform adequately for the full design period, but the surface layers are expected and allowed to. Construction of flexible pavement 1. The Public Works Department establish in the year At that time PWD was responsible for the construction of roads,buildings,railways as well as flood control,irrigation and military organization’s construction works is directly connected to the national programme of development and reconstruction.

Proper drainage is important to ensure a high quality long lived pavement; moisture accumulation in any pavement structural layer can cause problems. Moisture in the subgrade and aggregate base layer can weaken these materials by increasing pore pressure and reducing the materials’ resistance to shear.

Additionally, some soils expand when moist, causing differential heaving (the roadway. Pavement performance can be largely attributed to the care given in designing and preparing its foundation, which is comprised of the subgrade and base layers.

Base and subgrade layers must provide adequate and moisture resistant strength that meets the design modulus, in addition to durability and stability. To minimize premature pavement distresses and to enhance the pavement performance, it is imperative to provide adequate drainage to allow infiltrated water to drain out from the base and sub-base.

As an example, Figure shows that if the pavement system is saturated only 10% of its life (e.g., about one month per year), a pavement section with a moderate stability factor will be serviceable only about 50% of its fully drained performance period.

Specific distresses caused by excessive moisture within flexible and rigid pavements are. Drainage aggregate: Open-graded aggregate with high permeability. Drainage pipe: Rigid or flexible pipe conduit designed to collect and/or transport water out of the pavement section (usually perforated).

Edgedrain: A subsurface drain usually located at the edge of the pavement. Instrumentation for Flexible Pavements - Field Performance of Selected Sensors: FHWA-RD Report on the U.S.

Tour of European Concrete Highways: FHWA-SA Soil and Base Stabilization and Associated Drainage Considerations - volume II, Mixture Design Considerations: FHWA-SA There are two basic categories of drainage problems – surface drainage and subsurface e drainage includes the disposal of all water present on the surface of the pavement and nearby ground.

Proper surface maintenance procedures will help minimize the intrusion of surface water into the pavement through joints, cracks and other surface openings. • Provision has to be made for drainage of the temporary and permanent works. • Soil containing vegetable matter is not suitable as fill material.

• Borrow pits should not affect the stability of the road, or any other structure. Clearing and Grubbing (Specification ) Before any construction starts the roadway must be cleared of. impair constructability, pavement performance, and slope stability. Groundwater must also be considered in design and construction of drainage structures, wetlands mitigation sites, foundations, and retaining structures.

Evaluation of Flexible Pavement Drainage. Moisture can significantly affect flexible pavement performance. As such, it is important to remove moisture from flexible pavements as quickly as possible, especially to avoid allowing moisture into the pavement subgrade.

Given the damage potential of moisture intrusion, in the s the Indiana. zOther design factors (ie. drainage, friction, etc zFinite element analysis for flexible pavements zNeural network for rigid pavements Advanced testing and routine monitoring was completed as a part of the Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) project.

Flexible pavement is composed of a bituminous material surface course and underlying base and subbase courses.

The bituminous material is more often asphalt whose viscous nature allows significant plastic deformation. Most asphalt surfaces are built on a gravel base, although some 'full depth' asphalt surfaces are built directly on the subgrade. Pavement Drainage and Pavement Performance.

A Framework for quantification of effect of drainage quality on structural and functional performance of pavement.

International Journal of Engineering Research. Volume No.2, Issue No. 3, pp: Pavements (“PICP”) •Unlike other systems, the paving stones that comprise the wearing surface of the pavement are not permeable.

•Permeability is achieved through openings in the pavers or the joint spaces between the blocks. •Structurally, PICP is a flexible pavement (like asphalt). With data from general pavement studies (GPS)-I and GPS-2 of in-service flexible pavement test sections across the USA, the Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) database offers an unprecedented opportunity for evaluating the ways in which flexible pavements are designed and their associated performance.

Effect of Drainage in Unbound Aggregate Bases on Flexible Pavement Performance. The presence of free water within the pavement layers can cause detrimental effects on pavement performance, which is directly linked to many premature failures observed for constructed pavements.
