THE LIMITS OF RELIABILITY IN THE FATIGUE DESIGN OF CONCRETE PAVEMENTS

SUI LIMITI DI AFFIDABILITA DEL DIMENSIONAMENTO A FATICA NELLE PAVIMENTAZIONE CEMENTIZIE

A method for the design of rigid pavements is proposed, which includes an evaluation of the level of reliability of fatigue strength calculations. The procedure described is based mainly on two parameters; the elastic behaviour of the pavement under repeated loading, and the accumulation of fatigue due to thermal variations during the life of the slab. Some nomograms are presented to facilitate the use of the method at the design stage. (TRRL)
