TEMPERATURE INFLUENCES ON DEFLECTION OF A DEEP STRENGTH BITUMINOUS CONCRETE PAVEMENT

THE ASPHALT INSTITUTE IN ITS MANUAL (MS-17) - ASPHALT OVERLAYS AND PAVEMENT REHABILITATION, PRESENTS A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PAVEMENT DEFLECTION AND TEMPERATURE FOR PAVEMENTS HAVING MORE THAN 4 INCHES OF BITUMINOUS CONCRETE. A PAVEMENT WAS TESTED IN MELBOURNE TO VERIFY THE ASPHALT INSTITUTE RELATIONSHIP. DEFLECTION TESTING USING A BENKELMAN BEAM WAS UNDERTAKEN IN MAY 1969 FOR PAVEMENT STRENGTH EVALUATION PURPOSES, AND AGAIN IN 1971 TO DETERMINE THE INFLUENCE OF TEMPERATURE ON PAVEMENT DEFLECTIONS. THE RESULTS ARE PRESENTED IN TABULAR FORM. /AUTHOR/
