Roads have formed the basic infrastructure of commerce since flints and other tools and artifacts were jirst exchanged along the trade routes of prehistory. Roadways are very large, in volume, in extent, and in value. They also wear out, and their useful life is directly proportional to their initial strength and inversely proportional to the number of heavy goods vehicles using them. Therefore, the increasing complexity of road transportation need advanced techniques for effective design of
