Determination of equivalent axle load factors with the use of strain energy of distortion

Abstract

The paper proposes a new method for calculation of equivalent axle load factors based on the analysis of strain energy of distortion induced in road pavements by traffic loads. The main advantage of the method is the more accurate calculation of the effects of multiple axles and super single versus dual tyres. The methodconsiders the location of critical points, at which strain energy of distortion reaches extreme values. When single axles are considered, the function of equivalent axle load factor takes on the form of the well-known power equation with the exponent ranging from 2.7 to 5.3. It was proved that the damaging effect of triple axles on asphalt pavement is several times higher than the damaging effect of three single axles carrying the same load, but at a greater distance to each other. Due to this fact, traffic load may be significantly underestimated in many pavement design methods.
