Abstract [en]

Given its promise for enhanced sustainability, electrified road (eRoad) has become a realistic option to support the clean and energy efficient Electrical Vehicles (EVs). To investigate the structural implications, this study focuses on a promising eRoad system which is a dynamic application of the Inductive Power Transfer (IPT) to provide electrical power wirelessly to EVs in-motion. A computational study is made in which, via a series of Finite Element Modeling (FEM) analyses on the eRoad structural response under various rolling conditions, is found that eRoads could have quite different pavement performances comparing to the traditional road (tRoad). Importantly, harsh loading due to vehicle braking or accelerating could incur higher potential of premature damage to the structure, whereas sufficient bonding at the contact interfaces would improve the structural integrity and delay the damage risks. In addition, localized mechanical discontinuities could also be a critical threat to the performance of the overall structure. To ensure that eRoads fulfill their sustainability promise, it is thus recommended that more focus should be placed on the possible measures, such as new structures and materials, to improve the structural integrity and thus the overall pavement performance of the integrated system.
