Abstract : The report discusses research intended to demonstrate that the modulus of deformation of an asphaltic concrete is independent of the modulus of the base course(s). The strength of a flexible pavement is derived from its base as shown by theoretical considerations and the results of the eight pavements evaluated. The importance of considering the dynamic behavior of pavement systems is discussed.
