OBJECTIVES:

• 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 – Classification of highways – Locations and functions – Factors influencing highway alignment – Soil suitability analysis – Road ecology – Engineering surveys for alignment, objectives, conventional and modern methods.

UNIT II GEOMETRIC DESIGN OF HIGHWAYS 
Typical cross sections of Urban and Rural roads –– 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 

Design principles – pavement components and their role – Design practice for flexible and rigid Pavements (IRC methods only) – Embankments .

UNIT IV HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS AND PRACTICE 

Highway construction materials, properties, testing methods – CBR Test for subgrade – tests on aggregate & bitumen – 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 8

Pavement distress in flexible and rigid pavements – Pavement Management Systems – Pavement evaluation, roughness, present serviceability index, skid resistance, structural evaluation, evaluation by deflection measurements – Strengthening of pavements –Types of maintenance – Highway Project formulation.
