Viscoelastic Analysis of a Three-Layer Paving System Subjected to Moving Loads
The structural design of asphalt pavements is generally achieved by elastic methods based on the multilayer elastic theory developed by Burmister. The application of these methods requires some approximations, the asphalt surface layers being characterized by a typical viscoelastic behavior.
