Development and Validation of Characterization Method Using Finite Element Numerical Modeling and Advance Laboratory Methods for Western Australia Asphalt Mixes
MetadataShow full item record
A quantitative understanding of materials characterization of asphalt mixtures is required to determine the appropriate asphalt mixtures so that pavement distress and deformation can be reduced. Various numerical modeling and laboratory tools are used to assess the asphalt mixtures of flexible pavement and provided a significant and novel contribution to understanding of characterization of asphalt mixtures and design of flexible pavement. The contribution to understanding from this thesis shall be integrated in future body of knowledge.
