Response of cementitious pavement materials to repeated loading

A national research project on "Road Rehabilitation by Recycling Using Cementitious Binders" is being undertaken by the University of South Australia. This paper presents the findings of a literature survey completed for the project and the relationship between cementitious material properties and their variation with repeated loading. Under repeated loading, cementitious materials deteriorate due to fatigue cracking, crushing and erosion of weakly cementitious materials. These distress mechanisms are described and current laboratory tests used to characterise performance are outlined. Research areas for cementitious materials are identified to enable improved prediction of in-service performance of pavements which include cementitious materials.
