Stress-in-Motion Measurements of Heavy Vehicles from the Swiss Footprint Monitoring Site
2008 (English)In: 5th International Conference on Weigh-In-Motion, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
Stress-in-Motion data from the A1 motorway in Switzerland is examined. The data is classifiedby the load and stress distribution of the wheel and five examples are selected as beingrepresentative of the highly loaded wheels passing the site. A finite element model is used toexamine the effects that these five distributions have on the A1 pavement. It is concluded thatwhile there is an approximately linear relationship between pavement strain and wheel loadwhen other parameters are held constant, the effects of the stress distribution are moresignificant in the cases presented. It is also shown that the different stress distributions producesignificantly different effects on pavements irrespective of the wheel load.
