Abstract

This study practice about to the identifying flexible pavement distress along the jalan Permatang Pauh, Pulau Pinang. The objectives of this study are to get detail information related to the type, severity level of existing distress collected by doing a survey and relationship between traffic volume and pavement distress. From the result, it show that there are small percentage of lorries and busses that using this road. Where the percentage for lorry is 3.6%, the percentage of bus is 0.4% and the percentage of trailer that using that road is 0.38%. It can be conclude that there is no relationship between road distress and heavy vehicle (lorry, bus and trailer) at the peak hours of 5.00pm to 6.00pm. From the pavement distress observation along Jalan Permatang Pauh, the result show that the most type of distress is edge, where most of the stations have this kind of distress. The edge type distresses are caused by the improper drainage system.
The collected data is then used to determine needed maintenance activities on the network and a project level. Thus, the proper pavement treatment options cannot be accurately selected unless the types and the root causes of pavement distress are known and understood. The selection of the preferred alternative, in contrast, is typically based on the optimization of the benefits to costs ratio of each of the selected alternatives.
