PAVEMENT ANALYSIS BASED ON MEASURED IN-DEPTH DEFLECTION DATA

In-depth deflections were measured in three typical Swedish pavements during different seasonal conditions, as a part of a joint Norwegian/Swedish project. Deflections in individual layers of the pavement were calculated with a number of computer programs, including different material models, and compared to measured deflections. During spring and autumn conditions, with no frozen zone in the pavement, the best match is achieved with non-linear models (ILLI-PAVE). In the spring thaw, when the upper part of the subgrade is still fozen, a good match is found with linear elastic models (CHEVRON). Algorithms were also developed for calculation of vertical compressive strains at the top of the unbound layers from the surface deflections measured with the Falling Weight Deflectometer.
