For preliminary base calculations with criteria base on American Society of Civil Engineers 58-16: Structural Design of Interlock Concrete Pavement for Municipal Streets and Roadways. For more information please review ICPI Tech Spec Structural Design of ICP.
The design life of a pavement is the intended years of service from the pavement structure before major rehabilitation
Enter Equivalent Single Axes Loads (ESALs) based on traffic estimates from the chart. View Chart
Select the subgrade condition based on the subgrade soil classification, drainage characteristic and resilient modulus data or assumptions per chart. View Chart
Select the base type you plan to use in your street design.
Unbound granular materials are usually crushed stone, crushed slag or concrete.
Asphalt treated base is a dense-graded (but more permeable) hot mix asphalt with a wide gradation band and lower asphalt content intended for use as a stabilizing base course.
Cement Treated Base is a mixture of soils and/or aggregates with measured amounts of Portland cement and water that hardens after compaction and curing.
Asphalt Concrete Base is an aggregate, sand and asphalt cement mixture used as a base underneath more pavement courses.
