Abstract: The pavement management system deals with a pavement condition assessment. Rating of pavement can be done on the pavement condition assessment. Structural and functional distress is responsible for the failure of pavements. In this work, significant functional distresses which occur in flexible pavements are considered for the rating and assessment of road sections. The functional distress considered are Raveling, Potholes, Shoving, Patching, Depression, and Rutting as these are common and frequently occurred in the flexible pavements. The study of these distresses is done by authors. The measurement of distresses is done as per guideline given by the Indian Road Congress 1982 is used. For the condition, assessment guideline provided in Maintenance Management of Primary, Secondary, and Urban Roads, IRC, 2004, is used. Total five road section in the Pune region is considered for the study. All are flexible pavements. As Per assessment, it is observed that out of five segments, segment I and II are in fair to good condition, segment III is in very good condition. Segment IV and V are in very good and good condition, respectively.
