Paper by BONVINO from ISCR 8th 1998 Lisbon Portugal
A simplified viscose elastic model is proposed which is able to simulate the dynamic interactions between a vehicle and the rigid pavement under different loading conditions (constant and linearly variable in time). The deformations are correlated to the length of the mobile loads and to the characteristics of the vehicle. It has also been demonstrated that the model transmits the pavement different forces for each of the loading conditions for the specific vehicle. This aspect is heightened as the chosen speed of the vehicle is increased up to 140 Km/h.
