Mechanical Response Analysis of Heavy Traffic on Semi-Rigid Base Pavement Performance
Viewing so many overload vehicles, this paper analyzes the stress distribution of asphalt pavement structure under heavy traffic theoretically, according to the main asphalt pavement structure form in our country. By using elastic layer theory and BISAR3.0 program, analyzed the mechanical response variation of semi-rigid base asphalt pavement under different axle loads. The results showed that the mechanical response and the stress indexes of pavement structure under heavy traffic changed significantly. Therefore, in asphalt pavement design, the impact of heavy traffic should be fully considered and we must take measures to control the overload situation.
