Abstract
During the service period of pavement, the stress relaxation of pavement material is cumulated, stacked and inherited under the
one-way instantaneous cyclical load. In this process, the mechanical performances of the material, such as modulus and strength,
are as affected by the stress relaxation. In order to study the characteristics of asphalt stress relaxation in the case of vehicle loads,
the simulation results obtained from the random vehicle loading of a sampled highway as the basis contributing to the investigation
on the representative asphalt; by means of MTS equipment and the testing method to simulate asphalt stress relaxation under this
case has been designed taking into consideration the analog of vehicle loadings. Experimental results show that the asphalt stress
relaxation can be divided into two phases in the case of simulated vehicle loadings: that is, at first the stress decreased rapidly, i.e.
that relaxation velocity is faster; then, the curve tends to be flat, namely, relaxation rate slows down.
