1- Rigid pavement has a good flexural strength which serves as the major factor of design.
2- Rigid pavement has a concrete layer at the top, the base course and soil subgrade are under it.
3- Rigid pavement can distribute the load over a wide area because of its high flexural strength.
4- Load transfer is done by slab action.
5- The total thickness of the pavement is lesser than flexible pavement.
6- IRC: 58-2011 is used for designing of Rigid pavement.
7- Design life is 30 years.
