Abstract [en]

The existence of water in the layers of unbound road aggregates significantly influences the performance of pavement structure. Thus, the ability to estimate volumetric water content and its capillary effect is very important. Several models have been suggested to link the matric suction of unbound materials to their water retention properties. In this paper, an analytical moisture distribution model is proposed by using packing theory-based framework for unbound granular materials. The framework was previously developed by the authors of this paper and identifies two basic components of unbound granular materials skeleton: primary structure (PS) - a range of interactive coarse grain sizes that forms the main load-carrying network in granular materials and secondary structure (SS) - a range of grain sizes smaller than the PS providing stability to the aggregate skeleton. In the new moisture model, water was considered to be stored as both menisci water between SS particles and water that fully filled in very small voids. In order to validate the model, predicted results are compared with measured matric suction of a granite material with different gradations. The results showed that the model is capable of predicting the experimentally measured matric suction values for a range of gradations.
