Proceedings of sessions of the GeoShanghai Conference, held in Shanghai, China, June 6-8, 2006. Hosted by Tongji University and Shanghai Society of Civil Engineering, China. In cooperation with the Geo-Institute of ASCE; Georgia Institute of Technology; University of Kansas; University of Tennessee; International Association of Foundation Drilling; Deep Foundation Institute; Saga University; Delft University of Technology.
This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 36 papers presenting the latest advances in mechanistic modeling for highway and airfield pavements, pavement material characterization through advanced technology, and pavement performance prediction. Topics include imaging analysis, nondestructive testing, and innovative laboratory and field testing techniques for pavement material characterization. Papers on mechanistic modeling of pavement structures include the dynamic analysis of pavement responses under falling weight deflectometer, nonlinear analysis of stress-dependent pavement foundation through general finite element program, and analysis of airfield pavement under critical gear configurations. Several papers focus on the evaluation of pavement performance through various accelerated loading testing facilities around the world.
