Predict or Explain the Pavement Response to Load: Understand the Physical Governing Principles Analysis of Pavement Structures brings together current research and existing knowledge on the analysis and design of pavements. This book provides a platform for the readers to understand the basic principles of physics and mechanics involved in pavement analyses. From Simple to Complex Formulation: Learn to Develop Your Own Research or Field Problems The book introduces load and thermal stress analyses of asphalt and concrete pavement structures in a simple and step-by-step manner. Uniformity of symbol and sign conventions have been maintained throughout the book. References are made to more than 300 sources for the interested readers for further reading. The book helps to build confidence in the reader and allows them to formulate and solve their own research or field problems. Divided into eight chapters, the material in the book addresses: Characterization of various pavement materials Simple rheological models for asphaltic material Beams and plates on elastic foundations Thermal stress in concrete pavement Formulations for axial and bending stresses due to full and partial restraint conditions Analysis of elastic half-space Analysis of multilayered structures A formulation for thermo-rheological analysis of asphalt pavement Pavement design principles Analysis of a beam/plate resting on elastic half-space Analysis of dynamic loading conditions Analysis of composite pavement Reliability issues in pavement design Inverse problems in pavement engineering Analysis of Pavement Structures covers the basic approaches for pavement analysis, and highlights the fundamental principles followed in the analyses of pavement structures through numerous schematic diagrams.

Structural Behavior of Asphalt Pavements provides engineers and researchers with a detailed guide to the structural behavioral dynamics of asphalt pavement including: pavement temperature distribution, mechanistic response of pavement structure under the application of heavy vehicles, distress mechanism of pavement, and pavement deterioration performance and dynamic equations. An authoritative guide for understanding the key mechanisms for creating longer lasting pavements, Structural Behavior of Asphalt Pavements describes the intrinsic consistency between macroscopic performance and microscopic response, structure and material, as well as global and local performances, and demonstrates the process of pavement analyses and designs, approaching science from empirical analyses. Analyzes the external and internal factors influencing pavement temperature field, and provide a review of existing pavement temperature prediction models Introduces a “Bridge Principle through which pavement performance and fatigue properties are consolidated Defines the intrinsic consistency between macroscopic performance and microscopic response, structure and material, as well as global and local performance Summaries the mechanistic response of pavement structure under the application of heavy vehicle, distress mechanism of pavement, pavement deterioration performance and dynamic equations, and life cycle analysis of pavement

This book presents new studies dealing with the attempts made by the scientists and practitioners to address contemporary issues in pavement engineering such as aging and modification of asphalt binders, performance evaluation of warm mix asphalt, and mechanical-based pavement structure analysis, etc.. Asphalt binder and mixture have been widely used to construct flexible pavements. Mechanical and Chemical characterizations of asphalt materials and integration of these properties into pavement structures and distresses analysis are of great importance to design a sustainable flexible pavement. This book includes discusses and new results dealing with these issues. Papers were selected from the 5th GeoChina International Conference 2018 – Civil Infrastructures Confronting Severe Weathers and Climate Changes: From Failure to Sustainability, held on July 23 to 25, 2018 in HangZhou, China.
