Failure of Flexible Pavement

Failure of Flexible Pavement

A flexible pavement failure is defined by formation of pot holes,ruts,cracks,localized depressions and settlement.The failure of any one or more components of the pavement structure such as sub-grade ,base course,wearing course is liable for pavement failure.
Failure of Flexible Pavement
Following are some of the typical flexible pavement failures:
1. Alligator (map) cracking.
2. Consolidation of pavement layers.
3. Shear failure.
4. Longitudinal cracking.
5. Frost heaving.
6. Lack of binding to the lower course.
7. Reflection cracking.
8. Formation of waves and corrugations.
