Statistical analysis of damage accumulation in viscoelastic systems
Flexible pavements belong to a class of structures in which the progression and accumulation of damage is largely time-dependent. A highway pavement is a joint product of complex interactions between the pavement structure, vehicular loads, and climatic environment operating on the system. Therefore, the behavior of the system is greatly influenced by these parameters. Any uncertainty associated with one or more of these factors implies a corresponding uncertainty in the response and overall performance of the system.
