The Modeling Processes Exploitation by Pavement Management System in Slovakia

Road evenness is one of the basic factors of pavement quality. It represents not only the characteristic of the road serviceability, but also road safety and comfort. Longitudinal unevenness causes traffic discomfort and a danger of wheel-pavement interaction decreasing. Listed aspects were taken into account for an analysis of classification levels in the frameûof the Slovak Pavement Management System. The simulations of different boundary conditions during pavement surface diagnostics were oriented above all to the responseûof unevenness to the vehicle and to the ride comfort consequently. On the other hand, an effect of unevenness to interaction between surface and wheel was the basic criteriaûof evaluation from a safety pointof view. The paper is oriented to the observation and evaluation of described parameters during realized simulations and experimental measurements.For simulations the dynamic characteristics of real vehicles were used.
