Abstract

Pavement deterioration is a serious problem for road and traffic sector in almost every country. There are basically two types of pavements which are used for transportation of goods as well as passengers or people. One is flexible pavement and other is rigid pavement. The flexible pavements are known as bituminous roads. Due to continuous movement of vehicles on roads the different types of pavement failures like fatigue cracking, rutting and thermal cracking, pot holes are observed. The resurfacing of flexible pavements will enhance the life of pavements as well as it strengthens existing layers of pavements. Here in this article authors had discussed basic causes of flexible pavement failures. The flexible pavements have very long design life. Due to rainwater, continuous movement of vehicles, temperature variation, seasonal effects this types of pavements requires maintenance. The surface condition of flexible pavements affects the day and night visibility. So it is required to prevent the condition of flexible pavement during all seasons. Here we explained the basic types of flexible pavement failures and remedial measures.
