In the structural design of highways, asphalt concrete layers are designed to withstand fatigue cracking caused by the repetitive flexing under traffic loading. The current Austroads design guidelines for predicting fatigue cracking in the asphalt concrete layers is the Shell Fatigue Transfer Function. However, this model often under or overestimates the asphalt thickness required of New Zealand structural roads. The research investigates the suitability of the Shell model and examines…
