Rutting is ‘surface depression in the wheel path’.

Pavement uplift may occur along the rut.

They are two basic types

  1. Subgrade rutting:- it occurs when subgrade exhibits the wheelpath depression due to loadings.
  2. Mix rutting :- it occurs when the subgrade does not rut yet pavement surfaces exhibits wheelpath as result of compaction or mix design problems.
