Types of Pavements - Flexible Pavement vs Rigid Pavement

Flexible pavements are those pavements which reflect the deformation of subgrade and the subsequent layers to the surface. Flexible, usually asphalt, is laid with no reinforcement or with a specialized fabric reinforcement that permits limited flow or re positioning of the roadbed under ground changes. The design of flexible pavement is based on load

Flexible Pavement Definition and Explanation - Highway ...

Flexible pavement is composed of a bituminous material surface course and underlying base and subbase courses. The bituminous material is more often asphalt whose viscous nature allows significant plastic deformation. Most asphalt surfaces are built on a gravel base, although some 'full depth' asphalt surfaces are built directly on the subgrade.
