Need to predict & understand stress/strain distribution within

the pavement structure as they (σ & ε) relate to failure

(cracking & rutting)

Numerical Models

• Need model to compute deflections (δ) and strains (ε)

• Numerous models available with different:

– Capabilities

– Underlying assumptions What would be an

– Complexity ideal model?

– Material information requirements

IDEAL MODEL

Predicts Input Parameters

• Stresses • Static & dynamic loads

• Strains • Material properties

• Traffic However, can obtain

• Environment reasonable estimates!

No current model meets these requirements!

Topic 3 – Flexible Pavement Stress Analysis

1. Available Models

• Multilayer Elastic Theory

• Finite Element Methods

• Viscoelastic Theory (time and temp.-dependent behavior)

• Dynamic Analysis (inertial effects)

• Thermal Models (temperature change)

• Reasonable Results

• Properties Relatively Simple to Obtain

How do we get E? Before

& after construction

E&ν Before: lab testing (MR)

After: field testing (FWD)

• Small trailer

• Dropping Weight

• Geophones

• Deflection Basin

Uses elastic theory to predict the deflection basin for the given load. Then

iterates with different moduli configurations until the calculated deflection

basin matches the measured.

4. Stresses & Strains for Design

• Purpose of the pavement structure:

– Protect the subgrade; reduce stresses to a tolerable level to prevent

excessive settlement or collapse

4.1 Vertical Stress

• Vertical stress on top of subgrade; important in pvt design as

it accounts for permanent deformation (rutting)

• Allowable σz depends on E of the subgrade material

Vertical compressive strain (εc) used as a design criterion

a

– To combine the effect of stress (σ) and

q

stiffness (E)

– Effect of horizontal stress is relatively small; E1 h1

vertical strain caused primarily by vertical

stress E2 h2

εz = (σ z − ν (σ r + σ t )) ≅ σ z εc E3

E E

∞

4.2 Tensile Strain

• Tensile strain at the bottom of AC layer; used in pvt design as

the fatigue cracking criterion

• Two types of strain:

– Overall minor principal strain, ε3

– Horizontal ‘principal’ strain, εt (not an actual principal strain)

Topic 3 – Flexible Pavement Stress Analysis

4.2.1 Overall Principal Strains

• Based on all 6 components of normal and shear stresses – σx,

σy, σz, τxy, τxz, τyz

− Solve cubic equation to get σ1, σ2, & σ3

1

− Then calculate principal strains ε 3 = (σ 3 − ν (σ1 + σ 2 ))

E

Minor principal strain (ε3) considered to be tensile strain

because tension is negative

q

3 the horizontal plane

4.2.1 Horizontal ‘Principal’ Strain

• Based on the horizontal normal and shear stresses only – σx,

σy, τxy

• Horizontal ‘principal’ strain (εt) is slightly lower than the minor

principal strain (ε3)

– ε3 ≥ ε t

• Maximum horizontal strain on the X-Y plane

• Always acts on the horizontal plane

• Used by the program KENLAYER to predict fatigue failure

5. Two-layer Theory (Burmister)

Developed solutions for:

• Vertical deflections (flexible & rigid)

• Vertical stresses (limited # of cases)

− σ & δ highly dependent on stiffness ratio E1/E2

Notice the

importance of

stiffness ratio in

reducing stresses.

5.1 Two-Layer Deflections

• In one-layer theory we assumed that all layers could be

represented as one a

– δsurface = δtop of the subgrade

q

• For two-layer theory we have:

– Vertical Surface Deflection h1 E1

– Vertical Interface Deflection

E2

5.1.1 Surface Deflections

qa ∞

• Flexible Wmax = 1.5 F2

E2

qa

• Rigid Wmax = 1.18 F2

E2

• E2 accounts for most of the deflection (see following example)

• F2 takes into account the stiffness ratio

Topic 3 – Flexible Pavement Stress Analysis

5.1.4 Surface Vs Interface Deflections

Compare the results from the example:

• Surface deflection = 43 mils

• Interface deflection = 40 mils Top layer compression = 3 mils

Compression percentages:

the subgrade

– Does not account for failure in other layers

Nd = f4 ( ε c )

Topic 3 – Flexible Pavement Stress Analysis

7. Sensitivity Analysis

• Sensitivity analyses illustrate the effect of various parameters

on pavement responses

• Variables to be considered:

– Layer thicknesses h1 & h2

– Layer moduli E1, E2, & E3

7.1 Effect of HMA Thickness

hcr

• Critical thickness where εt is max • Increasing h1 effectively reduces εc

• Above hcr, increasing h1 effectively when base is thin

reduces εt

Topic 3 – Flexible Pavement Stress Analysis

7.2 Effect of Base Thickness

• Increase in h2 does not • Significant decrease of εc when h1

significantly decrease εt especially is low

when h1 is large

7.3 Effect of Base Modulus

• Increase in E2 significantly • Small decrease of εc when E1 is low

decreases εt when E1 is low

• Limits bending

Topic 3 – Flexible Pavement Stress Analysis

7.4 Effect of Subgrade Modulus

• Minimal effect on εt • As expected, E3 has great effect on

εc independent of what E1 might be

8.7 KENOUT

Kenout is a data manipulation program geared to help you post

process your data

Procedure:

• Rename the KENLAYER output file (LAYER.TXT) to something

relevant to your problem (i.e. Example2)

• Run the Kenout.exe program

• The program then asks for the filename to be read (Example2

– no .txt extension needed)

• Then it prompts you to give a new filename to store the

reduced data (i.e. Ex2 – again, no extension needed)

Output format:

• Original file – Example2

• Kenout – KENOUT.EXE

• Modified file – Ex2
