STRESSING OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS BY MEANS OF HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL TRAFFIC LOADS

BEANSPRUCHUNG VON FLEXIBLEN STRASSENDECKEN DURCH HORIZONTALE UND VERTIKALE VERKEHRSBELASTUNGEN

THE HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL FORCES WHICH ACT ON THE CARRIAGEWAY ON GRADIENTS AND ON BENDS ARE BEING DETERMINED BOTH AT CONSTANT SPEED AND DURING ACCELERATION AND BRAKING. THE EFFECTS OF THESE FORCES ON THE STRESSING OF THE ROAD PAVEMENT WILL THEN BE EXAMINED. THE STRESSES WHICH ARE BROUGHT ABOUT IN THE ROAD STRUCTURE ARE TO BE COMPARED WITH THE PERMISSIBLE STRESSES, AND THE RESTRICTION OF TRAFFICABILITY OF THE BITUMINOUS ROAD PAVEMENT CAUSED BY THE PLASTIC DEFORMATION IS TO BE ESTIMATED.
