Proceedings of the R. Lytton Symposium on Mechanics of Flexible Pavements, held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, June 1-3, 2005. Sponsored by Pavements Committee of the Geo-Institute of ASCE and Inelastic Committee of the Engineering Mechanics Division of ASCE.
This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 14 papers that focus on important topics in pavement engineering. Topics include modeling asphalt concrete response at the microstructural level, development and numerical implementation of constitutive models, and experimental characterization of asphalt concrete under different loading and environmental conditions. This volume also highlight the numerical implementation of micromechanical models that focus on establishing the linkage between the properties of asphalt concrete constituents and the macroscopic response.
This proceedings is a synthesis of the recent advances in pavement mechanics and will be beneficial to engineers working with pavement analysis, design, and performance prediction.
