Paper Title:
Mechanical Analysis of Porous Concrete Base in Asphalt Pavement
  Abstract

In China, it is fact that porous concrete base has been used in the construction of asphalt pavement in recent years because porous concrete base has good performance. However, Reasonable design method has not been put forward so far. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze load stress and thermal stress of asphalt pavement which includes porous concrete base in order to put forward theoretical basis for pavement design method. In the paper, three–dimension finite element model of asphalt pavement, which includes porous concrete base and asphalt surface, is created for the purpose of studying load stress and thermal stress of porous concrete base in asphalt pavement. Based on numerical method of three–dimension finite element model, finite element software, such as ANSYS, is employed to study load stress and thermal stress of porous concrete base in asphalt pavement. After that, the effect of different factors on stress is studied, and the factors include thickness of surface, thickness of base and ratio of base’s modulus to foundation’s modulus. Finally, calculation results for stress are compared with each other, and it shows that load stress of porous concrete base decreases with increase of base’s thickness, while thermal stress of porous concrete base increases with increase of base’s thickness. Load stress and thermal stress of porous concrete base decrease with increase of surface’s thickness. Load stress and thermal stress of porous concrete base increase with increase of ratio of base’s modulus to foundation’s modulus.
