2009 (English)In: Water in Road Structures: movement, drainage and effects / [ed] Andrew Dawson, Springer, 2009, 175-192 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter presents a mechanical behaviour study, i.e. the bearing capacity as a function of the moisture degree. The field point of view is expressed and the chapter summarises a number of observations on road behaviour, in relation to variations of moisture. First, the road structure is recalled with respect to the mechanical analysis point of view. Then some observations on field under temperate climate, humid, are given. In a second step, the specific case of frost and thawing are discussed.
