Accelerated load tests with a heavy vehicle simulator

Marjan Tušar, Mojca Ravnikar Turk

Abstract

A full-scale accelerated structural load test was performed in the scope of field trials conducted to investigate the effect of various strengthening actions on weak pavements. The asphalt layer thickness varied from 6.5 cm to 13.6 cm. The results of deformations applied on test structures are presented in the paper. The loading of each test structure lasted for approximately 2 weeks. Clear dependence between the depth of permanent deformation and thickness of asphalt layers was established on thin pavement structures only.
