24.

Design of flexible pavement, involves

 [A]. wheel loads [B]. intensity of traffic [C]. climate of the region [D]. sub-grade conditions [E]. all the above.

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Srinu said: (Nov 29, 2016) I think all the above are correct.

 Rakesh said: (Dec 8, 2016) All the above should be the answer.

 Jax said: (Feb 10, 2017) The most basic thinking which come to mind immediately when designing pavement is load type and intensity (ESALs) so the option E which is all of above.

 Chhaya said: (May 2, 2017) Yeah, all of above is the correct answer.

 Raj said: (Sep 7, 2017) Yes, Answer is all of the above.

 Bhanuvalmiki said: (Dec 20, 2017) Answer is E. I also agree.

 Virender Paul said: (Jun 9, 2018) Yes, it is all the above.

 Shibabaw D. said: (Jul 18, 2018) The answer should be E.

 Sunny said: (Jul 23, 2018) Given Answer is correct because, in this question specially asked flexible pavement (particular case is given). If there was simply pavement then the answer is E.

 Sadam Khan said: (Aug 14, 2018) What if the wheel load does not suit with flexible pavement design?

 Skb said: (Nov 23, 2018) Option C is correct as both the rigid & flexible pavement construction involves with op. A, B, D etc. But specially flexible pavement is the one in which case climatic condition should have to be taken into account to determine the grade of bitumen etc.

 Akki said: (Jun 18, 2019) Thanks @Sunny.

 Abbasi Ismail said: (Jul 27, 2019) Option E is correct.

 Asad Hayat Warraich said: (Jul 28, 2019) E is the correct answer because we consider all these factors in the design of flexible pavement. Consider the following (according to AASHTO standards): A. wheel loads: Equivalent Single Axle Load (ESAL). B. intensity of traffic: w18 (Sum of ESALs found by multiplying Axle Load Equivalency Factors with Average Daily Traffic). C. climate of the region: Drainage conditions (Drainage factors M2, M3). D. sub-grade conditions: CBR and Resilient Modulus. Hence, E is the correct answer.

Climate of the region: Drainage conditions (Drainage factors M2, M3). D. Sub-grade conditions: CBR and Resilient Modulus. Hence, E is the correct answer.

 Mali Alpesh said: (Dec 15, 2020) E is the right answer.
