Abstract : The main objectives of the research are the elucidation of environmental factors governing the behavior of flexible pavements, as they relate to civil and military engineering construction, with the aim of producing a new design procedure. This Report is mainly concerned with two approaches, namely the dynamic method based on laboratory repeated load tests on the pavement materials, and the impulse loading technique. (Author)
