Additional Resources

1. Designing a pavement that is either over very weak soils or will have very heavy loads using the k-value (modulus of subgrade reaction) can result in premature failures. We recommend checking your design with RPAS, a finite element pavement analysis tool developed by the University of Texas at El Paso and available to the Cement Council of Texas for your needs upon request. 

2. The American Concrete Institute (ACI) Guide for Design of Jointed Concrete Pavements for Streets and Local Roads, ACI 325.12, is the state of the practice. We are willing to provide you with a free copy if you contact us or copies may be purchased directly from ACI.

3. Pavement Designer is the state of the practice design software for streets and local roads and it can be accessed for free at
