Traffic Induced Reflective Cracking on Pavements with Geogrid-Reinforced Asphalt Concrete Overlay

Abstact The progress of reflective cracking on geogrid-reinforced asphalt overlay on cracked rigid pavements was investigated by iterative analysis of three-dimensional finite element models. The model consisted of Winkler subgrade, jointed concrete slabs, bonded interfaces between layers, equivalent geogrid layers with membrane elements, and asphalt… CONTINUE READING
