  1. 1. Analyses of Resilient Behavior of Unbound Materials for the Purpose of Predicting Permanent Deformation Behavior

    Author : Jan Englund; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Permanent Deformation; Unbound Material; Resilient Deformation; Post Compaction; Falling Weight Deflectometer FWD ; Triaxial Testing; Heavy Vehicle Simulator HVS ; Modulus;

    Abstract : Post compaction is the unintended compaction of the unbound material that commences immediately after a road is brought into service and caused by densification of the material. Analogies to this post compaction can also be seen in laboratory and field tests. READ MORE

  2. 2. Moisture Influence on Structural Behaviour of Pavements Field and Laboratory Investigations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Farhad Salour; Sigurdur Erlingsson; Guy Doré; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Falling Weight Deflectometer FWD ; backcalculation; unbound material; subgrade; seasonal variation; moisture content; spring-thaw; drainage; pavement stiffness; field test; pavement instrumentation; resilient modulus; permanent deformation; repeated load triaxial test; unsaturated soil; matric suction.; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : The structural behaviour of pavements in cold regions can considerably be affected by seasonal variation in environmental factors such as temperature and moisture content. Along with the destructive effect of heavy traffic loads, climatic and environmental factors can considerably contribute to pavement deterioration. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thaw Mechanism in Subgrades

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Amin Zeinali; Jan Laue; Tommy Edeskär; Sven Knutsson; Guy Dore; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Geoteknik; Soil Mechanics;

    Abstract : Freezing-thawing, changes the properties of soil due to the phase change of the water in the soil body. Freezing-thawing cycles in the soil have been studied for several decades including extensive laboratory research. In this study, the main focus is thawing based on laboratory investigation.

  4. 4. Mechanical Properties of Residues as Unbound Road Materials - experimental tests on MSWI bottom ash, crushed concrete and blast furnace slag

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Mark och vatten

    Author : Maria Arm; [2003]
    Keywords : residues; unbound materials; MSWI bottom ash; crushedconcrete; blast furnace slag; mechanical properties;

    Abstract : For recycled aggregates and industrial by-products to beused correctly in road construction, it is necessary to knowtheir properties. Existing material specifications and testmethods for aggregates used in Sweden and in many othercountries are indirect and are based on empiricism. READ MORE
