Design Methodologies of Asphalt Pavement Used in China and Mozambique

Jose Francisco Rufino Diogo, Ammar Abbas Mohammed Shubber and Mu Han Lin

Abstract:
This study discusses and compares Asphalt Concrete (AC) pavement design methodologies used in China and Mozambique (based on South African Transportation and Communication Commission (SATCC) methodologies). The SATCC design methodologies use California Bearing Ratio (CBR) and catalogues methods. The South African catalogues are basically used for roads with traffic less than 30 million ESAs. The design catalogues method give small thickness than CBR and Chinese methods. The Chinese and the South African design methods give nearly the same thickness; this study concludes that these methods can be used in both countries; China and Mozambique. The results also show that the strong point of Chinese method is verifying the tensile stress and allowable displacement on the pavement calculated from computer program APDS.
