Issues of design and calculation of road surface with block covering






The paper deals with some topical issues concerning the need of developing theoretical bases of designing, calculation and optimization of road clothes with block covering. These issues include a wide range of usage, from coverings for improvement of urban areas to heavy road designs of warehouses, ports and container terminals. Addressing steadiness and evenness and as a result extending the road structure life requires the development of design schemes which would be adequate to the certain type of paving, using theoretical solutions reflecting the individual characteristics of such structures. For the development of theoretical solutions for design and calculation of road pavements, the author proposes three new additional conditions for ensuring steadiness and evenness of block covering.
