Desert Road Hypothesis: No Subgrade Kevlar Fiber Surface Road
Hundreds of millions of steamship can navigate without sinking in water which is absent from any shear capacity. Imagine whether buildings can float in the sand when a large enough cavum is given by the same token. China’s desert area is of huge percentage, it is a meaningful thing to drive the development of the desert oasis and expand the available area through road building. In this paper, the authors state the necessity of the desert road building in the first place. Secondly, choose a particular material Kevlar fiber base on the specificity of the desert road. Thirdly, design the profile of this kind of road, testing the capacity in ANSYS software, and lead Maxwell magnetic field into preventing sand burying is an innovative application. Finally, discuss the comprehensive feasibility on the advantages and disadvantages. Difficulties though there are, it is a bright direction for building road through desert.
