The primary objectives of this research effort were: (1) To better describe the characteristics of surface-initiated longitudinal wheel path cracking by investigating pavements in the field that have exhibited this mode of distress. (2) To investigate changes in tire and loading characteristics over time that might help to explain the prevalence of this mode of failure. (3) To obtain measured tire-pavement contact stresses for a standard radial truck tire and to conduct stress analyses to… CONTINUE READING
