CPEE 606

Heavy Duty Pavements

This Unit deals with heavy duty pavement. In general, heavy duty pavements are similar to road and highway pavements but are required to service vehicles with much higher wheel loads and different performance requirements. Although different nomenclatures are used by various jurisdictions and authorities, the following terms are used in this Unit:

  • Heavy duty pavements. General term encompassing all of the non-road and highway pavements that are addressed in this Unit.
  • Heavy duty road pavements. Designed for road-like vehicles but of much larger wheel loads, such as vehicles on forestry and quarry roads.
  • Airport pavements. Used by aircraft other than small general aviation aircraft.
  • Port and Industrial Pavements. Used by port vehicles, including container terminals and intermodal port facilities.
