Abstract

The best connectivity to any part of the country is first to develop infrastructure of the country. The use of geo-textiles in flexible pavements has been a well-accepted practice over the past thirty years. In most recent years, the base course of flexible pavement is reinforced by geo-textiles to improve performance and to reduce the thickness of base course. There are two major types of pavements: flexible and rigid. In this we are discussing about the flexible pavements. The performance of some flexible pavements in some climatic condition has been proved disappointing because a transverse crack has been developed within a few years of construction. Other forms of flexible pavements distress include alligator or map cracks, ruts and reflective cracking. The additional benefit in the construction of flexible pavement by using geo-textile is that they are very stiff. Review of the most papers concluded by using Geo-textiles in the flexible pavement can rise the service life of the pavement than the previous pavements. Geo-textiles of both natural and synthetic are helpful in improving the geo-technical properties of soil. These fabrics are used for erosion control, filtration, for vegetation support etc. Geo-textile is eco-friendly and can be used in road works cost effectively.
