ANNA UNIVERSITY CIVIL SYLLABUS
CE6504  HIGHWAY ENGINEERING SYLLABUS
5TH SEMESTER CIVIL ENGINEERING
REGULATION 2013

OBJECTIVES:
To give an overview about the highway engineering with respect to, planning, design, construction and maintenance of highways as per IRC standards, specifications and methods. 

UNIT I HIGHWAY PLANNING AND ALIGNMENT
Significance of highway planning – Modal limitations towards sustainability - History of road development in India – Classification of highways – Locations and functions – Factors influencing highway alignment – Soil suitability analysis - Road ecology - Engineering surveys for alignment, objectives, conventional and modern methods.

UNIT II GEOMETRIC DESIGN OF HIGHWAYS
Typical cross sections of Urban and Rural roads –– Cross sectional elements - Sight distances – Horizontal curves, Super elevation, transition curves, widening at curves – Vertical curves - Gradients, Special consideration for hill roads - Hairpin bends – Lateral and vertical clearance at underpasses.

UNIT III DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE AND RIGID PAVEMENTS
Design principles – pavement components and their role - Design practice for flexible and rigid Pavements (IRC methods only) - Embankments .

UNIT IV HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS AND PRACTICE
Highway construction materials, properties, testing methods – CBR Test for subgrade - tests on aggregate & bitumen – Construction practice including modern materials and methods, Bituminous and Concrete road construction, Polymer modified bitumen, Recycling, Different materials – Glass, Fiber, Plastic, Geo-Textiles, Geo-Membrane (problem not included) - Quality control measures - Highway drainage –– Construction machineries.

UNIT V EVALUATION AND MAINTENANCE OF PAVEMENTS
Pavement distress in flexible and rigid pavements – Pavement Management Systems - Pavement evaluation, roughness, present serviceability index, skid resistance, structural evaluation, evaluation by deflection measurements – Strengthening of pavements –Types of maintenance – Highway Project formulation.

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:
The students completing this course would have acquired knowledge on planning, design, construction and maintenance of highways as per IRC standards and other methods.
