Özet

The first rigid pavement section in Turkey under the jurisdiction of General Directorate of Highways was designed as Jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP) according to Belgian Catalog method. This design was compared with the traditional empirical American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO-93) design method and with the mechanistic-empirical (M-E) pavement design guide. Moreover, the international roughness index (IRI) values measured with intervals were compared with the predicted values of M-E analysis. According to M-E analysis, it is predicted that IRI and faulting will exceed but the cracking will be within the limit values during its service life.
