RESULTS OF CAPTIF PAVEMENT TESTING AND ANALYSIS

Element 1 of DIVINE is being undertaken at the Canterbury Accelerated Pavement Testing Indoor Facility (CAPTIF) in Christchurch. The purpose of Element 1 is to compare pavement performance and life under accelerated loading by different suspensions. CAPTIF is unique among accelerated pavement test facilities because the "vehicles" in the facility are designed to generate realistic dynamic loading characteristics and instrumentation, the dynamic characteristics of the vehicles and suspensions, the measurement and testing strategy, and the data and results to date. Currently, pavement construction and characterisation of the vehicle dynamics has been completed and pavement testing is in progress.
