Study on the Dynamic Performance of Asphalt Concrete under Passive Confined Pressure
An improved passive confining pressure SHPB method was used to study the dynamic mechanical behaviors of asphalt concrete under quasi-one dimensional strain state. The effect of confining jacket material and its geometrical sizes on the confining pressure were discussed. The dynamic strength, dynamic modulus of elasticity and dynamic Poisson ratio of asphalt concrete were obtained. The influential rules of confining pressure on the dynamic properties were studied by comparing the stress-strain curves of asphalt concrete under different stress states. The study found that passive confining greater impact on the strength of asphalt concrete than elastic modulus and Poisson ratio, but the elastic modulus improved with the increase of confining pressure.
