|Abstract:||aweP4t design methods of highway and airfield pavements are based on eori index of the strum of pavement component t .terials obtained from toots iWh*td. In the load magnitude increases slowly and is allowed to either remain for some _... ,.ifi time period or until some BpeCUisd rate of deformatton to reached. Results ofsuch teats have been correlated empirically to ide • reasonat►la and reliable bars La fat design. Bow.ver, so" pavements have failed even thouqh their design was base 00 this principle, Such observationslead to inn► tigattons for studying the effects of repeated loads on various layers of the pavement section,, Thereu fore in r :mort years, it has been increasingly realm that the uiodern dsinofhighway and airfLei should include some un nt*l conai.c ti o s for the cyclic; nature of traffic load applications, rxsvestiqstions an pavement component materials have shorn that their behaviour under static load tests is not indicative of behaviour under repetitive loading more realistic and s iiul at. he pavement behaviour more closely thsn the static loading.
