PAVEMENT STRUCTURES AT THE INTERSECTION AREA
AbstractFrom the very beginning of the application of modern pavements, it was known that with increasing load on the pavement structure, more attention should be paid to the details during design and construction in order for the pavement structure to reach the planned lifetime. Heavy, slow vehicles that stop, stand, rotate and accelerate transmit the largest possible load on any pavement structure. These phenomena are most frequent at intersections, but also occur at traffic lanes on increased longitudinal slopes, weighing stations, bus stations and stops, parking lots and rest areas, and the like. Due to the need to equalize the characteristics and behavior of all elements of the road, the areas exposed to increased and non-characteristic loads must receive particular attention during design.
