Abstract

The COMPAS vehicle dynamic model was used to estimate the dynamic wheel forces applied on the pavement surface under different roughness levels, vehicle types, vehicle speeds, and suspension types. The dynamic response of the pavement and the permanent deformation accumulated on the pavement surface were calculated at small intervals after different load repetitions using the three-dimensional finite element program ABAQUS. The pavement profile and serviceability after different load repetitions were determined. Further, mechanistic-based pavement performance models were developed for typical pavement sections.
