The other major vehicle resistance force on level ground is the rolling resistance of the tires. At low speeds on hard pavement, the rolling resistance is the primary motion resistance force. In fact, aerodynamic resistance becomes equal to the rolling resistance only at . The detrimental effects of dynamic axle loads increase rapidly with the pavement evenness deterioration, resulting in faster (up to 25%) development of pavement distresses for IRI = .

This study aims to predict the Dynamic Load Coefficient (DLC) of tyre forces from truck axles. Dynamic Load Coefficient is frequently used to characterise the dynamic loads generated by axles. It is a simple measurement of the dynamic variation magnitude of the axle load, for a specific combination of road roughness and speed. Under normal operating conditions, the DLCs value is typically in. substantial pavement damage because of the increase in the weights of the axles. However, the truck size and weight liberalizations that have received most attention in the literature would encourage a switch from the dominant type of heavy truck, the 5-axle tractor semitrailer, to trucks that have higher payloads and additional axles.

Loads are the vehicle forces exerted on the pavement (e.g., by trucks, heavy machinery, airplanes). Since one of the primary functions of a pavement is load distribution, pavement design must account for the expected lifetime traffic loads.

Get this from a library. Dynamic pavement loads of heavy highway vehicles. [Allan P Whittemore;] -- Although dynamic vehicle loads are assumed to affect the life expectancy of pavement and bridge structures, the degree of influence has been conjectural.

The project fell into three phases. Dynamic loading is the constantly varying load of a vehicle due to internal and external factors while moving along a road. Consideration of the dynamic effect of heavy vehicles on pavement performance is a complex issue.

This report presents the literature review conducted to investigate the many factors involved, including. The smoothness of pavement ensures riding comfort, which is more important for drivers on freeways and highways because of faster travel speeds. If the pavement is smooth, it not only ensures a high quality of riding, but it also diminishes the potential damage due to the dynamic loads of vehicles to pavements.

HVTT Dynamic wheel loads of heavy vehicles – preliminary analysis 3 vertical distance between itself and the pavement surface, which will reduce with an increased vertical load, as shown in Figure. Heavy vehicle design affecting dynamic pavement loading This paper considers the influence of heavy vehicle design on dynamic pavement loads induced by road roughness.

Four linear, stochastic models representing the pavement loading process are described, and the effect of various parameter changes on their predictions are : A N Heath. DYNAMIC WHEEL LOADS In order to quantify the effects of fluctuating wheel loads on pavement deterioration it is necessary to examine the accumulated damage due to all axles of a passing vehicle at specif1c points on the road swface.

Loss of serviceability Will be governed by a small proportion of locations at which large damage occurs. loads; and • Dynamic interaction between pavement conditions and vehicle speed, number of tires per axle, tire pressures, and suspension characteristics.

The factors most relevant to a national level TS&W study are the magnitude, spacing and frequency of axle loads. These factors along with information on surface roughness, base strength. Such irregular pavement profile, combined with vehicles’ high velocities, can create dynamic loads that are as large as 25%–40% of the static component, thus tending to escalate pavement damages and differential settlements, especially for those sitting on soft ground [19,30,44] and impair ride comfort as well.

of live loads, such as highway truck loads, in addition to dead loads imposed by the soil and surcharge loads. LIve Loads If a rigid pavement or a thick flexible pavement designed for heavy duty traffic is provided with a sufficient buffer between the pipe and pavement, then the live load transmitted through the pavement to the buried concrete.

One of the primary functions of a pavement is load distribution. Therefore, in order to adequately design a pavement something must be known about the expected loads it will encounter. Loads, the vehicle forces exerted on the pavement (e.g., by trucks, heavy machinery, airplanes), can be characterized by the following parameters: Tire loads.

THE IMPACT OF HEAVY VEHICLE TRAFFIC ON ROAD PAVEMENTS Background The road network in NZ compromises approximat km of roads. About % or 11, km of these roads are State Highways managed by NZTA. State highways generally carry higher traffic volumes and are. dynamic pavement loads were achieved by suspensions with soft springs, appropriate levels of viscous damping, minimal coulomb friction and tyres that were not over -inflated.

In this paper we develop analytic models to study the interactions between moving, dynamic loads and highway pavements. One set of models simulates the dynamic behavior of heavy vehicles, including their body configuration and mass distribution, axle spacing and configuration, nonlinear suspension characteristics, and nonlinear tire behavior.

Pavement fatigue refers to progressive damage from continued exposure to heavy loads and traffic. Similar to other materials, while asphalt does bend, continued bending and stressing will eventually “break” it, and you may begin to notice extreme wear in the particular area of stress.

As pavement bends, its various layers are affected, and you may first begin to notice surface cracking. An analogy between the dynamic wheel loads and ride quality performance characteristics of heavy vehicles is established through analysis of an in-plane vehicle model.

A weighted optimization function comprising the dynamic load coefficient (DLC) and the overall rms vertical acceleration at the driver's location is formulated to determine the.

Numerical simulation approach has recently grown in popularity due to its wide range of applications in the solving of random vehicle-pavement interaction (VPI). This study proposes a framework to simulate the dynamic vehicle load process due to a quarter-truck vehicle model moving along a rough road surface.

It has long been observed that informa­ tion on pavement behavior relating to loads applied by moving vehicles would be of value when compared to data collected under static load conditions. There are many other areas of highway and vehicle research and design where the relationship between dynamic load.
