Analysis of Pavement Structures - By "Animesh Das"

File Size: 2.09 mb

The book introduces load and thermal stress analyses of asphalt and concrete pavement structures in a simple and step-by-step manner. Uniformity of symbol and sign conventions have been maintained throughout the book. References are made to more than 300 sources for the interested readers for further reading. The book helps to build confidence in the reader and allows them to formulate and solve their own research or field problems.
* Divided into eight chapters, the material in the book addresses:
* Characterization of various pavement materials
* Simple rheological models for asphaltic material
* Beams and plates on elastic foundations
* Thermal stress in concrete pavement
* Formulations for axial and bending stresses due to full and partial restraint conditions
* Analysis of elastic half-space
* Analysis of multilayered structures
* A formulation for thermo-rheological analysis of asphalt pavement
* Pavement design principles
* Analysis of a beam/plate resting on elastic half-space
* Analysis of dynamic loading conditions
* Analysis of composite pavement
* Reliability issues in pavement design
* Inverse problems in pavement engineering

Analysis of Pavement Structures covers the basic approaches for pavement analysis, and highlights the fundamental principles followed in the analyses of pavement structures through numerous schematic diagrams.
