A New Approach to Model Asphalt Pavement Overlay Cracking
The study proposes the Genetic Operation Tree (GOT), which integrate Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Operation Tree (OT), to build the model for Asphalt Pavement Overlay Cracking. The training data sets of pavement cracks were collected from a 15-year experiment conducted by the Texas Departments of Transportation. Even without a presumed formula structure, the GOT still can self-organize formula and produce a very concise model for predicting the length of pavement cracking.
