The Structural Design of Heavy Duty Pavements

This paper presents the background to the third edition of the British Ports Association (BPA) heavy duty pavement design manual, published in 1996. It describes a radically new way of analysing pavements which is incorporated in the design method. It includes a design chart which can be used to proportion the courses of heavy duty pavements. It describes materials used commonly in heavy duty pavements and explains the special nature of loads encountered on heavy duty pavements. Professor J. Knapton
