CONTAINER TERMINAL PAVEMENTS - THE STATE OF THE ART
Certain design methods, for example the elastic theory method are very reliable, as they take into account all the important variables. This method will continue to be expensive and time-consuming however, until considerable testing has been carried out on the types of materials normally used for pavements, in order to determine their elastic properties. Repeated load testing is also necessary on a variety of surfaces in order to understand the mechanics of deformation under load.
