To give engineers involved in planning and designing of asphalt pavements a more accurate prediction of crack initiation and propagation, theory-based models need to be developed to connect the… (More)
Abstract Thin flexible pavements are widely used worldwide in scarcely populated areas. However, this kind of pavement structure is not widely used in Germany. As a result, no M-E design procedure… (More)
Abstract Unbound granular materials (UGM), used in base and subbase layers, play a major role in the structural performance of low volume roads (LVR) with a thin asphalt surface layer. A prerequisite… (More)
After premature de-bonding failures of several roads in Germany, researchers at the Technische Universitat Dresden developed a new testing device, the Dresden Dynamic Shear Tester (DDST), for quali...
Abstract The compaction of asphalt mixtures creates different tensile strengths throughout the asphalt mixture and is thus of importance to ensure durable pavement performance. Asphalt mixtures are… (More)
This article presents a new mechanistic-empirical design approach for thin asphalt layer pavements. The design approach was developed by focusing on limiting the main sources of rutting of unbound… (More)
