Introduction and Description of Pavements


Pavements are an essential part of our life. We use them as roads, runways, parking lots, and driveways. Pavements are engineered structures and are important for our everyday life, commerce and trade, and defense. 
Surface transportation is the most widely used mode of transportation in the world, and a country’s development is often measured in terms of its total paved road mileage. 

The construction of roads is and will continue to be a major industry in developing countries, and as the infrastructure matures, it will be a major industry in developed countries as well. 

Like any other engineered structure, pavements are expected to be adequately strong and durable for their design life. 

They are expected to function properly by providing a smooth traveling surface for the traffic under various conditions of the environment. In order to ensure this, pavements must be designed, constructed, maintained, and managed properly.
