THIS PAPER DESCRIBES SOME ASPECTS OF THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL WORK CARRIED OUT IN SOUTH AFRICA, OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS, IN A STUDY OF 'CHICKEN NET' CRACKING OF A ROAD SURFACING, AND OF THE FLEXURE INDUCED IN IT BY WHEEL LOADS. THE ACCURACIES OF COMMON MEASURES OF THE SEVERITY OF FLEXURE ARE DISCUSSED. OF THESE, RADIUS OF CURVATURE HAS BEEN ADOPTED FOR GENERAL TESTING. RESULTS OF FIELD OBSERVATIONS WHICH REVEAL A DISTINCT RELATION BETWEEN CURVATURE AND DEGREE OF CRACKING OF A SURFACING ARE… CONTINUE READING
