  1. 1. Analyses of Resilient Behavior of Unbound Materials for the Purpose of Predicting Permanent Deformation Behavior

    Författare :Jan Englund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Permanent Deformation; Unbound Material; Resilient Deformation; Post Compaction; Falling Weight Deflectometer FWD ; Triaxial Testing; Heavy Vehicle Simulator HVS ; Modulus;

    Sammanfattning : Post compaction is the unintended compaction of the unbound material that commences immediately after a road is brought into service and caused by densification of the material. Analogies to this post compaction can also be seen in laboratory and field tests. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Granular Materials for Transport Infrastructures : Mechanical performance of coarse–fine mixtures for unbound layers through DEM analysis

    Författare :Ricardo de Frias Lopez; Johan Silfwerbrand; Jonas Ekblad; Björn Birgisson; Jörgen Johansson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; discrete element method; force distribution; gap-graded mixtures; granular materials; particle-scale behaviour; permanent deformation; resilient modulus; soil fabric; binära blandningar; diskreta elementmetoden; grusmaterial; kraftöverföring; verkningssätt på partikelnivå; permanent deformation; skelettstruktur; styvhet; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Granular materials are widely used as unbound layers within the infrastructure system playing a significant role on performance and maintenance. However, fields like pavement and railway engineering still heavily rely on empirically-based models owing to the complex behaviour of these materials, which partly stems from their discrete nature.

  3. 3. Moisture Influence on Structural Behaviour of Pavements : Field and Laboratory Investigations

    Författare :Farhad Salour; Sigurdur Erlingsson; Guy Doré; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Falling Weight Deflectometer FWD ; backcalculation; unbound material; subgrade; seasonal variation; moisture content; spring-thaw; drainage; pavement stiffness; field test; pavement instrumentation; resilient modulus; permanent deformation; repeated load triaxial test; unsaturated soil; matric suction.; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : The structural behaviour of pavements in cold regions can considerably be affected by seasonal variation in environmental factors such as temperature and moisture content. Along with the destructive effect of heavy traffic loads, climatic and environmental factors can considerably contribute to pavement deterioration. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Performance model for unbound grnular materials pavements

    Författare :Tatek Fekadu Yideti; Björn Birgisson; Andrew Dawson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; unbound granular materials; aggregate; packing theory; gradation; primary structure; secundary structure; permanent deformation; resilient modulus;

    Sammanfattning : Recently, there has been growing interest on the behaviour of unbound granular material in road base layers. Researchers have studied that the design of a new pavement and prediction of service life need proper characterization of unbound granular materials, which is one of the requirements for a new mechanistic design method in flexible pavement.

  5. 5. Characterising the Deformation Behaviour of Unbound Granular Materials in Pavement Structures

    Författare :Mohammad Shafiqur Rahman; Sigurdur Erlingsson; Charles Schwartz; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; unbound granular materials; resilient modulus; permanent deformation; moisture; model; multistage; repeated-load triaxial test; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Unbound granular materials (UGMs) used in the base and sub-base layers of flexible pavements play a significant role in the overall performance of the structure. Proper understanding and characterization of the deformation behaviour of UGMs in pavement structures are, therefore, vital for the design and maintenance of flexible pavements. LÄS MER
