Conformal Mapping-Based Approach for Transformation of Vehicle Loads
For complex pavements, there are circular, elliptic and rectangular shape vehicle loads under different conditions. Treatment way of vehicle loads is studied with conformal mapping method in this paper. Approach for transformation them to uniform circular shape is also researched. Terminal goal is enable the road engineers to accommodate changes of vehicle loads in their used way to pavement design which using static loads with uniform vertical pressure distribution without any more attached difficult.
