CE8604 HIGHWAY ENGINEERING
To give an overview about the highway engineering with respect to, planning, design, construction and maintenance of highways as per IRC standards, specifications and methods.
UNIT I HIGHWAY PLANNING AND ALIGNMENT
Significance of highway planning – Modal limitations towards sustainability – History of road development in India – factors influencing highway alignment – Soil suitability analysis – Road ecology – Engineering surveys for alignment, objectives, conventional and modern methods – Classification of highways – Locations and functions – Typical cross sections of Urban and Rural roads
UNIT II GEOMETRIC DESIGN OF HIGHWAYS
Cross sectional elements – Sight distances – Horizontal curves, Super elevation, transition curves, widening at curves – Vertical curves – Gradients, Special consideration for hill roads – Hairpin bends – Lateral and vertical clearance at underpasses.
UNIT III DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE AND RIGID PAVEMENTS
Pavement components and their role – Design principles -Design practice for flexible and rigid Pavements (IRC methods only) – Embankments- Problems in Flexible pavement design.
UNIT IV HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS AND PRACTICE
Highway construction materials, properties, testing methods – CBR Test for subgrade – tests on aggregate & bitumen – Test on Bituminous mixes-Construction practice including modern materials and methods, Bituminous and Concrete road construction, Polymer modified bitumen, Recycling, Different materials – Glass, Fiber, Plastic, Geo-Textiles, Geo-Membrane (problem not
included) – Quality control measures – Highway drainage –– Construction machineries.
UNIT V EVALUATION AND MAINTENANCE OF PAVEMENTS
Pavement distress in flexible and rigid pavements – Types of maintenance – Pavement Management Systems – Pavement evaluation, roughness, present serviceability index, skid resistance, structural evaluation, evaluation by deflection measurements – Strengthening of pavements –Highway Project formulation.
