Stress The stresses that occur in a flexible pavement under load are quite complex Although rigid pavement stresses have been routinely calculated since the 1920s, routine calculation of flexible pavement stresses is a more recent development First, two-dimensional layered elastic programs offered desktop computers the ability to calculate these stress
Currently, the design of flexible pavements is largely empirical (Helwany et al, 1998; Huang, 1993) However, mechanistic design is becoming more prevalent, which requires the accurate evaluation of stresses and strains in pavements due to wheel and axle loads
Flexible pavements are those pavements which reflect the deformation of subgrade and the subsequent layers to the surface Flexible, usually asphalt, is laid with no reinforcement or with a specialized fabric reinforcement that permits limited flow or re positioning of the roadbed under ground chang The design of flexible pavement is based on load
