These functional requirements of pavements are achieved through careful considerations in the following aspects during the design and construction phases: (a) selection of pavement type, (b) selection of materials to be used for various pavement layers and treatment of subgrade soils, (c) structural thickness design for pavement T.

layers, (d) subsurface drainage design for the pavement system, (e) surface drainage and geometric design, and (f ) ridability of pavement surface. The two major considerations in the structural design of highway and airport pavements are material design and thickness design. Material design deals with the selection of suitable materials for various pavement layers and mix design of bituminous materials (for flexible pavement) or portland cement concrete (for rigid and interlocking block pavements). These topics are discussed in other chapters of this handbook. This chapter presents the concepts and methods of pavement thickness design. As the name implies, thickness design refers to the procedure of determining the required thickness for each
