A pavement is smooth surface or matelled structure built to carry the traffic load under climate conditions.

Why pavement Needed?

               A smooth structure is provided for

  • The natural earth surface cannot support the modern heavy wheel loads.
  • The natural earth surface cannot provide an adequate smooth wearing surface.

Therefore a constructed pavement distributes the wheel load sufficiently and provides a necessary smooth wearing surface.

Road PV
Road PV are generally classified into two types:

  • Flexible PV
    The pv which have very low flexible strength and are flexible in their structural behavior under the wheel loads are called flexible PV.
  • Rigid PV
    They are hard in nature are are made to take heavy loads, mostly such kind of Pv’s are made of concrete, reinforced cement concrerte.
