A thermodynamically compatible model for describing asphalt binders: solutions of problems Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2015 Taylor and Francis. In this sequel to the first paper (Málek et al., 2014. International Journal of Pavement Engineering), in which we identified a generalisation of the model due to Burgers which was corroborated against two sets of experiments, including a challenging one showing distinctly different relaxation times for shear and normal stresses, we solve several time-dependent boundary value problems wherein the boundary of the material is deforming, that have relevance to applications involving asphalt. Problems wherein the boundary is subject to time-varying compressive loads such as those due to moving automobiles and the attendant rutting, and the compaction due to rollers are considered in additions to other problems.
