Two and Three-dimensional finite element analyses were conducted on concrete block paving. In order to verify the calculated results, a case study was analysed. Good agreement was observed between the measured and the calculated results. Based on the Finite Element (FE) analysis results and available failure models, comprehensive design charts were developed which can take into account; the subgrade and pavement layers properties as well as the tyre pressure and the number of repetitive loads.
