The Thermal Stress Analysis on Stress Absorption Interlayer of Asphalt Overlay
By using finite element method, the thermal stress of stress absorption interlayer of asphalt overlay on the cement concrete pavement is analyzed in this paper. The result shows that the inter-laminar shear stress and the structural vertical displacement are influenced by the thickness of stress absorption layer, while the asphalt bottom stress is less affected; the increase of the modulus is unfavorable to the structural vertical displacement, the inter-laminar shear stress and the asphalt bottom stress.
