The American Concrete Pavement Association’s newest technical publication, Design of Concrete Pavement for Streets and Roads, provides an overview of major variables in street and roadway design, offering tips and technical information for engineers, consultants, contractors and others involved in pavement projects. The 16-page piece is organized into the topic areas of street classification and traffic; geometric design considerations; subgrades and subbases; concrete quality; thickness design; jointing; and, construction specifications.
An updated and expanded version of an eight-page document first produced in 1992, Design of Concrete Pavement provides more than a dozen charts for quick reference in planning and designing roadways for current and future demands. Among topics covered in the tables are reliability; projected slab cracking values; traffic and thickness correlations; axle load distributions; and subgrade/subbase strength models. The publication also includes engineering drawings showing typical cross sections of joint types; typical two-lane roadway sections; two-lane sections with parking; and three-lane sections.
