Dynamic Response Solution in Transient State of Viscoelastic Road under Moving Load and Its Application

In order to study the dynamic response of an asphalt road, a dynamic model of the road under a moving load is proposed, in which the viscoelastic characteristics of the base and pavement are all considered, the pavement is regarded as an infinite beam on a Kelvin viscoelastic base. By using Green's functions, Laplace transforms, and Fourier transforms, the analytical solution in transient is deduced. As the viscosity of the pavement is included in the model, the analytical solution can be used to investigate more of the factors that affect the dynamic response, such as vehicle speed, temperature, and road material properties. Using this analytical solution, some numerical calculations are given to illustrate the effects of vehicles' speeds and different damping on the deflection with the displacement.
