        Roads & Pavements 1. BUILDING SERVICES UNIT IX ROADS AND PAVEMENTS 2. ROADS A Road is a thoroughfare, route, or way on land between two places, which has been paved or otherwise improved to allow travel by some conveyance, including a horse, cart, or motor vehicle. When this publication, entitled Standard Specifications for Roads and Structures, dated January , is incorporated by reference into the Department’s construction bid proposals or contracts; it is made a part of that document and shall be known as the Standard Specifications.

A hard smooth surface, especially of a public area or thoroughfare, that will bear travel. blacktop, blacktopping - a black bituminous material used for paving roads or other areas; usually spread. pavement, the wearing surface of a road, street, or sidewalk. Parts of Babylon and Troy are believed to have been paved; Roman roads Roman roads, ancient system of highways linkin.

      The rigid pavements are made of cement concrete either plan, reinforced or prestressed concrete. Critical condition of stress in the rigid pavement is the maximum flexural stress occurring in the slab due to wheel load and the temperature changes. Rigid pavement is designed and analyzed by using the elastic theory. Advantages of Rigid Pavement. Asphalt pavements are smooth and flexible, so tires on asphalt encourage less resistance than on other types of pavements. This improves fuel economy and leads to quieter, more pleasant rides without compromising safety.

Full text of "Roads and pavements in France" With the hope of aiding the cause of highway im- provement the writer contributes this little book, mainly made up of an account of stone roads in France, their mode of construction and maintenance, and embodying to some extent the results of experi- ence of some of the best French engineers.

Concrete roads are good roads but not cheaper roads. These roads should be considered only if sufficient funds are available. The thickness of the pavement and the reinforcement should not be compromised. Semi Rigid pavements should be constructed in nearby areas of steel plants where these materials are available free of cost.

The road will be tested for the next two years and is expected to generate. A road is a thoroughfare, route, or way on land between two places that has been paved or otherwise improved to allow travel by foot or some form of conveyance, including a motor vehicle, cart, bicycle, or horse.

Roads consist of one or two roadways (British English: carriageways), each with one or more lanes and any associated sidewalks (British English: pavement) and .The mechanistic-empirical procedures should lead to a longer life for many pavements.

According to FHWA, pavements typically are designed for a year period of performance, although some States use 30 to 40 years. Some pavements, however, last much longer. These may be called long-life pavements.The first indications of constructed roads date from about BC and consist of stone-paved streets at Ur in modern-day Iraq and timber roads preserved in a swamp in Glastonbury, England.
