# DESIGNED PAVEMENT CHECK

The verification below is pased on the "Flexible Pavement Design Manual", published by
FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, in january 2005.
Evaluation of the "Equivalent Single Axle Loads" (ESAL D)

x
ESALD =
AADTiT24DfLfE18365
y1

## ESALD = Number of accumulated 18-kip(80-kilonewton) Equivalent Single Axle

Loads in the design lane for the design period

y = The year that the calculation is made for.When y=1, all the variables
apply to year 1

## AADT = Average Annual Daily Traffic.

T24 = Percent Heavy Trucks during a 24 hour period. Trucks with 6 tires or
more are considered in the calculations.

## DF = Directional Distribution Factor - 1.0 if one way traffic is counted or 0.5

for two way traffic.

## LF = Lane Factor converts directional trucks to

the design lane trucks

## E18 = Equivalency factor which is the damage

caused by one average heavy truck measured in 18
kip(80-kilonewtons) Equivalent Single Axle Loads.

## Evaluation of the total calculated strength of the

pavement layers
SNC = (a1 x D1) + (a2 x D2) + (a3 x D3) + ...+ (aN x DN)

SNC = The total calculated strength of the pavement layers and has units of inches.

## a1 = Layer coefficient of the 1st layer.

Di = Layer thickness in inches
