Research on Design Method for Heavy Duty Asphalt Pavements and Its Application Excerpt :

Premature damage is currently the main problem with heavy-duty asphalt pavements. In order to decrease such premature damage, it is necessary to develop a new design system meeting the requirements of heavy-duty pavements. Based on considerable field investigations and mechanistic analysis, a five-phase design procedure, including data collection, structural combination design, structural thickness design, material testing and examination, and a final decision, was established. The procedure is a comprehensive design tool employing performance-related structural design consideration and mechanistic-based material design consideration that can link performance analysis, structural design, and material design (tests). After consideration of the extensive pavement performance data collected and subsequent analysis, relevant design equations and design criteria were proposed, including whole life asphalt pavement structural behavior equations, life cycle cost analysis models, field fatigue equations, and a shear-based rutting prediction model. As research progressed, test roads and pilot roads were constructed in ten provinces of China, and the first test road has been used successfully for 15 years.

8th RILEM International Conference on Mechanisms of Cracking and Debonding in Pavements Excerpt :

This book presents the latest advances in research to analyze mechanical damage and its detection in multilayer systems. The contents are linked to the Rilem TC241 - MCD scientific activities and the proceedings of the 8th RILEM International Conference on Mechanisms of Cracking and Debonding in Pavements (MCD2016). MCD2016 was hosted by Ifsttar and took place in Nantes, France, on June 7-9, 2016. In their lifetime, pavements undergo degradation due to different mechanisms of which cracking is among the most important ones. The damage and the fracture behavior of all its material layers as well as interfaces must be understood. In that field, the research activities aims to develop a deeper fundamental understanding of the mechanisms responsible for cracking and debonding in asphalt concrete and composite (e.g. asphalt overlays placed on PCC or thin cement concrete overlay placed on asphalt layer) pavement systems.

Dynamics of Vehicle Road Coupled System Excerpt :

Vehicle dynamics and road dynamics are usually considered to be two largely independent subjects. In vehicle dynamics, road surface roughness is generally regarded as random excitation of the vehicle, while in road dynamics, the vehicle is generally regarded as a moving load acting on the pavement. This book suggests a new research concept to integrate the vehicle and the road system with the help of a tire model, and establishes a cross-subject research framework dubbed vehicle-pavement coupled system dynamics. In this context, the dynamics of the vehicle, road and the vehicle-road coupled system are investigated by means of theoretical analysis, numerical simulations and field tests. This book will be a valuable resource for university professors, graduate students and engineers majoring in automotive design, mechanical engineering, highway engineering and other related areas. Shaopu Yang is a professor and deputy president of Shijiazhuang Tiedao University, China; Liqun Chen is a professor at Shanghai University, Shanghai, China; Shaohua Li is a professor at Shijiazhuang Tiedao University, China.
