CALCULATION OF HORIZONTAL RADIAL STRESSES IN PAVEMENT SURFACING /IN PORTUGUESE/

THE BEARING CAPACITY OF STRENGTHENING LAYERS CAN BE PREDICTED FROM THE RADIAL HORIZONTAL TENSILE STRESSES IN THE PAVEMENT SURFACING. BECAUSE THE EXACT CALCULATION OF THESE STRESSES IN MULTILAYER SYSTEMS IS EXPENSIVE, AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO EVALUATE A SIMPLIFIED CALCULATION METHOD BASED ON THE PORTUGUESE METHOD OF PAVEMENT DESIGN. RESULTS, SO FAR, SHOW THAT THIS SIMPLIFYING METHOD CAN BE SUCCESSFULLY APPLIED. /BMI-LNEC/TRRL/
