[Abstract]: It is not uncommon to see road pavement damage in areas near road intersections. One type of pavement failure found on major roads appears to be caused by frequent decelerations and accelerations of heavy vehicles near signalized intersections. The effects of such repeated surface tractions on road pavement have not been widely studied yet. Proposed in this paper is a plan to develop an experimental program that will simulate the actions of repeated decelerations and accelerations of vehicles. The developed simulator will provide a realistic model to investigate road pavement failures in the future.
