Abstract :

Rigid pavement is a technical term that is used where road are made up of concrete instead of asphalt. These roads are providing excellent pleasing appearance. Rigid pavement does not allow any flexibility as comparison of flexible pavement. The rigid pavement is basically formed of cement concrete or reinforced concrete slab that is of either plan, reinforced or prestressed concrete. The characteristics of rigid pavement are generally associated with flexural strength and rigidity which result that the load is distributed over a wide area of sub-grade. This paper is a study about the construction of a rigid pavement, what are the different types of joint as well as the different design factor that we considered while constructing the rigid pavement. The different types of cracks formed on rigid pavement and how these cracks to be occurred on rigid pavement. Recommendation has been given for design as per IRC 15 2011 and IRC 62 2014 and also for joints.
