Estimation of the cracking probability in road structures by modeling of external influences

DOI: 10.3846/bjrbe.2013.31
 
This paper presents the initial study results of the process of crack appearance in asphalt pavements by reason of traffic load and temperature. Calculations were carried out using of finite element method. According to the modeling results appearance of reflected cracks under the traffic load and cracks that occurred under the influence of temperature were predicted. Recommendations on the choice of the road structure are also presented in the paper.
 
Keywords: asphalt concrete pavements, cracking, finite element method (FEM), modeling, stresses, deflection, climatic conditions, traffic load.
