  1. 1. Packing theory-based Framework for Performance Evaluation of Unbound Granular Materials

    Författare :Tatek Fekadu Yideti; Björn Birgisson; Denis Jelagin; Tutumluer Erol; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Enhancing the load bearing quality of granular layers is fundamental to optimize the structural performance of the pavements. Unbound granular materials are one of the most used materials in the base layers of pavements. There have been growing interests on the behavior of unbound granular material in road base layers.

  4. 4. Air-coupled microphone measurements of guided waves in concrete plates

    Författare :Henrik Bjurström; Nils Rydén; Björn Birgisson; Tadeusz Stepinski; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Non-destructive testing; Lamb waves; surface waves; air-coupled microphones; non-contact measurements;

    Sammanfattning : Quality control and quality assurance of pavements is today primarily based on core samples. Air void content and pavement thickness are parameters that are evaluated. However, no parameter connected to the stiffness is evaluated. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Non-contact surface wave measurements on pavements

    Författare :Henrik Bjurström; Nils Rydén; Björn Birgisson; Jinying Zhu; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; seismic testing; asphalt concrete; dynamic modulus; non-contact measurements; rolling measurements; surface waves; Lamb waves; MEMS microphones; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, nondestructive surface wave measurements are presented for characterization of dynamic modulus and layer thickness on different pavements and cement concrete slabs. Air-coupled microphones enable rapid data acquisition without physical contact with the pavement surface. LÄS MER
