Software Development (PAKPAVE) for Flexible Pavement Design

The aim of this paper is to develop software for the flexible pavement design based on the AASHTO, Group Index, and CBR. This software can be used to determine the thickness of each layer, design life evaluation, knowing the relative damage factor, finding the various design variables like calculating the structural number and equivalent single axle load etc and climatic effects. The results obtained from this software were analyzed and compared with the theoretical (manual) design and with the DARWin, a design software of AASHTO, and were found absolutely feasible and accurate. This flexible Pavement software can save the precious time and avoid the errors and difficulties occurring during the conventional methods of design.
