Paper Title:
Reliability Analysis of Asphalt Pavement Structure Based on Three-Dimensional Finite Element
  Abstract

The design of asphalt pavements in china is currently based on the multilayered elastic method, which is analytical in nature and yields stresses, strains, and deflections in the pavement system for a particular loading condition and pavement geometry, which are compared with established failure criteria to determine the performance of the given pavement. This design approaches is deterministic. In this paper, typical asphalt pavement structure reliability analysis was performed in which factors that affect pavement reliability regarded as input random , pavement surface deflection, layers of bottom stress and limit state function regarded as output variables , by reliability tool infinite element analysis, base on Monte Carlo’s Latin hypercube sampling method.At last the paper pertinently offered decision basis for improve the reliability of pavement structure and important reference values for drafting and selecting of asphalt pavement design parameters through calculating the reliability of pavement structure, sensitivity analysis of the design parameters is made.
