Development of a roughness estimation model for low volume roads

Makendran Chandrakasu, Murugasan Rajiah

Abstract

Pavement roughness is one of essential performance indicators that are used in road maintenance. A model was developed in this study to obtain roughness value from easily measurable distress values, namely cracking and potholes, for low-volume roads in India. The data collected at 173 in-service flexible pavements were utilised for model development. Using the model developed in this study, a satisfactory roughness value can indirectly be obtained from the cracking and potholing data, even without the use of a roughness measuring device.

Keywords
roughness, cracks, potholes, low volume roads, regression analysis
