rigid pavement

rigid pavement

[′rij·əd ′pāv·mənt]
(civil engineering)
A thick portland cement pavement on a gravel base and subbase, with steel reinforcement and often with transverse joints.

rigid pavement

A pavement which provides high bending resistance and which distributes loads to the foundation over a relatively large area.

rigid pavement

A pavement structure that distributes loads to the subgrade having as its surface course a Portland cement concrete slab of relatively high bending resistance (ICAO). See pavement structure.
