An analysis of the subgrade strength for the soil conditions occuring in Bangkok is made from considerations of the soil suction characteristics of clays, the surcharge of the pavement structure and the water table. It is shown that this is not likely to be greater than 1.5 percent CBR. On this basis comparative designs for flexible and rigid pavements are developed using three widely used design methods for four levels of traffic. The differences between the pavement thickness given by the… CONTINUE READING
