Abstract: Deflection is the important index of asphalt pavement design and the final acceptance. Using double circular load of Design Specification and four circular load of Benkelman test vehicle, the deflection was analyzed with four kinds of common pavement structures, the results show that the deflection of theoretical calculation was the Benkelman beam test 55%-75%, but Design Specification uses the F coefficient which less than 1 to correct the difference, the two have had the contradiction. The deflection of two and three axles load mode were analyzed, and compared with the axle load conversion coefficient C1. The result could provide the reference of axle load conversion and the correction coefficient for the pavement design.

Abstract: Vehicle load is one of the most important factors influencing service performance and service life of pavement. In the pavement design and analysis, different axle loads need be conversed to the standard axle load based on the equivalent deterioration principle of pavement. Pavement surface deflection values under different axle loads have been measured on several expressways in this paper. The correlation relationships between deflection and axle loads are analyzed. The regularity of deflection and axle conversion index based on deflection equivalent are analyzed, too. The axle conversion formula based on deflection equivalent for asphalt pavement is regressed according to the actually measured deflection data. This research achievement can provide us with a reliable axle load conversion method for asphalt pavement design.
