Objective

 

This course is designed for graduate students with background in Highway materials, asphaltic materials and pavement mechanics.  The students shall be introduced to pavement material characterization methodology; simulation of in-service conditions; conduct of experimental program for fatigue cracking modeling and plastic deformation modeling under repetitive loading; development of constitutive laws; accelerated climatic conditions; durability testing.

 

 

Text   

 

There is no single text, however several books and handouts will be used throughout the course.

Course Format

 

Grade will be awarded based on lecture attendance and participation, homeworks, paper abstracts (bi-weekly) of related subjects, and term project report.  Each student is expected to put extra effort to utilize term project to widen his knowledge and experience which should in turn be reflected in the term project report.  Full utilization of library resources is also expected to ease and facilitate smooth running of laboratory work.
