Abstract:
A marked structural peculiarity of even the thickest street pavement is its thinness compared with its area and the fact that surface earth is used as its foundation. I have observed that this peculiarity results in damage to a residental street pavement from forces acting in the earth and from weather, as well as from traffic.
