THE BASIC PRINCIPLES IN ACCELERATED TESTING ON THE EFFECTS OF SUSPENSIONS ON PAVEMENTS

The Research Element 1 of the OECD/DIVINE project compares the effects of good and poor suspensions on bituminous pavements at the Canterbury Accelerated Pavement Test Indoor Facility (CAPTIF) at Christchurch in New Zealand. This paper handles the basic principles of accelerated testing of pavements and especially those related to the problem of the effects of good and poor suspension on pavement performance. The demands for this kind of testing are discussed. CAPTIF was found to be the most suitable facility for this purpose; the selection and the facility are briefly described as well as the present situation.
