Guide to Pavement Technology Part 6: Unsealed Pavements
Part 6 of the Guide to Pavement Technology addresses unsealed pavements including operational demands of unsealed road surfaces, pavement configurations, floodways, cuts, fills and mine haul roads, the identification of suitable pavement materials…
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 10: Subsurface Drainage
Part 10: Subsurface Drainage provides advice on the general requirements for drainage materials, design of pavement drains and construction and maintenance considerations. This Part contains information on the types and uses of subsurface drainage…
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 7: Pavement Maintenance
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 7: Pavement Maintenance provides broad guidance on current routine maintenance practices for sealed pavements suitable for use by both supervisory and field staff.  This publication should be read in…
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4: Pavement Materials
The selection of pavement materials is a critical element in the design, construction and maintenance of pavements if performance is to be optimised and whole of life costs minimised. This part of the Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology provides…
Service Life of Pavements: Context, Review and Definition of Terms
The project was aimed at providing an understanding of 'remaining service life' as a concept and definitions of key terms such as 'design life', 'service life', 'remaining service life (RSL)', 'designated level of service', and 'threshold distress…
Managing the Impacts of Rising Watertables and Salinity on Remaining Pavement Life: Report of 2005/2006 Activities
This report comprises a technical review and update on new knowledge about salinity impacts and pavements. A review of recent literature and research outputs has indicated that there are knowledge gaps in the area of how salinity affects pavements…
Investigation of the Load Damage Exponent of Unbound Granular Materials Under Accelerated Loading
This report details the experimental program, analysis and findings of the assessment of the impacts of axle mass increases on road deterioration for sprayed seal surfaced unbound granular pavements. Load-damage exponents ranged between two and four…
Improved Distress Viscosity Model for Reseal Intervention
An existing model predicted binder life by combining a binder hardening (increase in viscosity) model and a distress viscosity model. Inputs for the two models were site temperature parameters, binder durability (resistance to hardening) and seal…
Development of an Aggregate Size Term for a Reseal Intervention Model
An existing model predicted maximum seal life by combining a binder hardening (increase in viscosity) model and a distress viscosity model. Inputs for the two models were site temperature parameters and binder durability (resistance to hardening).…
