The new multi-layer pavement system is proposed according to the laboratory impact test. This proposed multi-layer pavement is the combination of High Strength Concrete (HSC), Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC), and Asphalt Concrete (AC) reinforced with High Strength Geosynthetics (GST), which has good impact resistance. The control specimens with current pavement design will also be investigated for its dynamic behavior under impact load. Results from conventional and proposed multi-layer pavement will be discussed.
