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 =
 AADTiT24DfLfE18365
y1

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

x = The Design Year.

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.
