Pavement Analysis and Design
This text/software package explores the structural analysis and design of highway pavements - focusing on the mechanistic-empirical design procedures rather than the purely empirical methods. *presents the theory of pavement design and reviews the methods developed by several organizations, such as the AASHTO, the AI, and the PCA. *includes the KENLAYER program for flexible pavements - applicable to a multilayered system under stationary or moving multiple wheel loads with each layer being either linear elastic, nonlinear elastic, or viscoelastic. *contains the KENSLABS program for rigid pavements - applicable to multiple slabs fully or partially supported on a liquid, solid, or layered foundation with moment or shear transfer across the joints. *presents most of the advanced theory and detailed information in appendices. *features a large number of examples and line drawings.
