    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Performance; Deformation; Model not math ; Rutting wheel ; Viscoelasticity; Elasticity; Axle load; Flexible pavement; Laboratory not an organization ; Test; Thesis; Heavy vehicle simulator; Wheel tracking test; Road: Pavement design; Road: Pavement design; Flexible Pavement; Pavement Performance Models; Multilayer Elastic Theory; Linear Viscoelasticity; Rutting; Accelerated Pavement Testing; Heavy Vehicle Simulator; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Mechanistic-Empirical  (M-E)  pavement  design  procedures  are  composed  of  a  reliable  response model to estimate the state of stress in the pavement and distress models in order to predict the different types of pavement distresses due to the prevailing traffic and environmental conditions. One of the main objectives of this study was to develop a response model based on multilayer elastic  theory   (MLET)  with  improved  computational  performance  by   optimizing  the   time consuming parts of the MLET processes.

  2. 2. Vehicle-Pavement Interaction

    Author : Parisa Khavassefat; Björn Birgisson; Denis Jelagin; David Cebon; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Finite element; Viscoelasticity; Moving load; Dynamic axle loads; Road roughness; Flexible pavement; Stochastic;

    Abstract : Several aspects of vehicle-pavement interaction have been studied and discussed in this thesis. Initially the pavement response is studied through a quasi-static and a dynamic computationally efficient framework under moving traffic loads. READ MORE

    Abstract : The roads in our society are in a state of constant degradation. The reasons for this are many, and therefore constructed to have a certain lifetime before being reconstructed. To minimize the cost of maintaining the important transport road network high quality prediction models are needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Methods for measurements and analyses of cracks in flexible pavements

    Author : Petra Offrell; KTH; []
    Keywords : Cracking; Crack propagation; Data collection methods; Image analysis; Image processing; LTPP; Automatic identification systems; Flexible pavement; PAVUE; Laser RST; measures; characterisation; x-ray computerised tomography; asphalt; 3D analysis; top-;

    Abstract : When cracking has propagated through the entire asphaltbound layers, water may ingress into the unbound layers andaccelerate the deterioration of the road structure. Knowledgeon where cracks initiate and how they propagate vertically istherefore of great practical importance. READ MORE
