    Abstract: Asphalt concrete pavement is designed to under take repeated loading for its design life with minimal maintenane requirements. Under such loading mode, micro cracks appears in the flexible pavement structure, while it exhibit self healing ability of micro cracks. In this work, the impact of repeated tensile and shear stresses on accumulation of per... Show More

    Abstract: Durability design of a sea-crossing bridge in Zhejiang Province was carried out. Exposure condition of the marine environment was divided into four zones, i.e., atmospheric zone, splash zone, tidal zone and subsea zone. Environment condition surrounding the bridge was introduced, and then the factors affecting the deterioration of the concrete stru... Show More
