The term ‘soil’ in soil engineering is defined as an unconsolidated material, composed of solid particles, produced by the disintegration of rocks. The void space between the particles may contain air, water or both. The soil particles may contain organic matter.

Joints are too important for the rigid pavements because the joints are responsible for reducing stresses developed due to temperature variations. There are two type of joints-
The Transverse joints are subdivided into three categories-
Rigid Pavements are those which possess noteworthy flexural strength or flexural rigidity. The rigid pavements are generally made of Portland Cement Concrete (CC) and are therefore called ‘CC Pavements’. Plain cement concrete pavements slabs made of specified strength characteristics are laid, with or without steel reinforcement at the joints.
Flexible Pavements are those which on the whole have low or negligible flexural strength and are rather flexible in their structural action under the loads. Means, Flexible pavements are designed to pass the load immediately from the point where it occurs.
