THE CONTRIBUTION OF THE ROAD PAVEMENT IN ABSORBING HORIZONTAL MOVEMENTS IN AN EMBANKMENT

This paper reports the results of a Finite Element computer analysis of a bridge abutment together with its approach embankment and the natural ground. The abutment is subjected to reversing horizontal displacements. Two runs were made, one with and one without the additional stiffness of the road pavement on the embankment. The differences in the results of the two runs are discussed. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 873218.
