  1. 1. Computational Road Mechanics - with Emphasis on FE-analysis of Rutting

    Author : Johan Olsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : non-linear FEM; multi-layer structure; asphalt concrete; road design; material models; unbound material;

    Abstract : A road is a very complex structure in which a large number of different structural phenomena occur simultaneously that effects its expected lifetime. The structure itself is of a multi-layer type, in which the different layers consist of materials that exhibit vastly different physical behaviors when subjected to various kinds of loads. READ MORE

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

    Author : Jan Englund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 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

  3. 3. Performance model for unbound grnular materials pavements

    Author : Tatek Fekadu Yideti; Björn Birgisson; Andrew Dawson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; unbound granular materials; aggregate; packing theory; gradation; primary structure; secundary structure; permanent deformation; resilient modulus;

    Abstract : Recently, there has been growing interest on the behaviour of unbound granular material in road base layers. Researchers have studied that the design of a new pavement and prediction of service life need proper characterization of unbound granular materials, which is one of the requirements for a new mechanistic design method in flexible pavement.

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

    Author : Farhad Salour; Sigurdur Erlingsson; Guy Doré; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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

  5. 5. Characterising the Deformation Behaviour of Unbound Granular Materials in Pavement Structures

    Author : Mohammad Shafiqur Rahman; Sigurdur Erlingsson; Charles Schwartz; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; unbound granular materials; resilient modulus; permanent deformation; moisture; model; multistage; repeated-load triaxial test; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Unbound granular materials (UGMs) used in the base and sub-base layers of flexible pavements play a significant role in the overall performance of the structure. Proper understanding and characterization of the deformation behaviour of UGMs in pavement structures are, therefore, vital for the design and maintenance of flexible pavements. READ MORE
