DESIGN OF FLEXIBLE ROAD PAVEMENTS BY MEANS OF THE US DOT COMPUTER PROGRAM VESYS

BEMESSUNG VON FLEXIBLEN FAHRBAHNVERSTAERKUNGEN MIT HILFE DES RECHENPROGRAMMS VESYS DER US-STRASSENVERWALTUNG DOT

THE OBJECT OF THE RESEARCH IS TO CHECK THE VESYS PAVEMENT DESIGN SYSTEM WHICH PROVIDES FOR THE CALCULATION OF EXPECTED TRAFFICABILITY, I.E. THE FORMATION OF RUTS, LONGITUDINAL IRREGULARITIES AND CRACKS. THE AIM IS TO INTRODUCE POSSIBLE MODIFICATIONS AND TO PRODUCE A FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT DESIGN METHOD WHICH IS READY FOR USE.
