      Pavement structural design for low-volume roads considers two types of pavements: 1. Flexible pavements (with hot-mixed asphalt concrete [AC] surfacing/binder and flexible base course). 2. Rigid pavements (jointed plain concrete pavement [JPCP]). This chapter covers the design of low-volume roads for flexible and rigid pavement surface typesFile Size: KB.

      For low volume roads several authors suggest the use of a pavement composed by three layers. Thus, above the subgrade floor we can find the sub-base layer, then the base coat and finally the wear layer. In Figure 1 we can find a type scheme for low-volume roads. (MTPW, a) Figure 1: Constitution of a typical pavement for low volume roads. AN ECONOMIC PAVEMENT SURFACING FOR LOW VOLUME ROADS Durga Prasad Osti Key Words: Otta seal, road pavement, Earthen and gravel surfaces are commonly used on low volume roads. This article discusses the construction and use of otta seal, a low cost road well as poor workmanship can be misinterpreted as a design failure. In terms of cost.

Although low-volume roads carry 5 a small percentage of the overall traffic, their associated crash rates are considerably higher than 6 those for higher volume roads. Clearly, low-volume roads are an important part of the nation’s 7 transportation infrastructure.

total pavement costs for low-volume roads are more sensitive to pavement design than costs for Inter­ state highways. For example, a 1-in change in sur­ facing thickness for an Interstate highway may in­ crease the cost per mile by 15 percent, but the same design change for a low-volume road could increase the cost per mile by 50 percent.

This paper compares various actual Waterproof Gravel and Low Volume Surfaced Road pavement. The design is based on the Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) and is aimed at achieving a balanced pavement design whilst optimizing the in situ material strength in the existing gravel road. Citation.

The Committee on Low-Volume Roads was established to fill this technology gap, to provide a forum for exploring and exchanging experiences on engineering appropriate to LVRs. Interest in LVRs spans the full range of transportation engineering—planning, route investigation, geometric design, pavements, structures.
