4 LITERATURE REVIEW Researchers Research Area/ Findings S. Pirabarooban, M. Zaman, R. A. Tarefder. (2003)FEM results show that the ABAQUS-based model can adequately account for cyclic loading and other factors and, as such, it can be used effectively to evaluate the rutting potential of in-service pavement.K. Nesnas, M. Nunn. (2004)A response model (3D) is generated in ABAQUS to predict top down crackingR. Zafar, W. Nassar and A. Elbella. (2005)In this study the finite element software ABAQUS is used to study stress redistribution due to the presence of earth pressure cell (vertical stress-measuring instrument) in the pavement layersW.G. Buttlar, G. H. Paulino, and S. H.Song. (2006)Numerical examples and an implementation using the user material subroutine UMAT of the finite element software ABAQUS are also provided to illustrate the benefits of using graded elements in pavement analysis.
5 LITERATURE REVIEW Researchers Research Area/ Findings Tabakovic, Amir; McNally, Ciaran; Sorelli, L. G.; Gibney,Amanda; Gilchrist, M. D. (2006)A damage mechanics model has been developed in order to compare the behaviour of RAP (Recycled Asphalt Pavement), The damage model was implemented within the ABAQUS finite element code using a UMAT subroutineGrace G. Abou-Jaoude, Ziad G. GhauchA 3D Finite Element model of the pavement involving a linear viscoelastic constitutive model for HMA materials and non-uniform tire contact stresses is developed using ABAQUS 6.11 to investigate the effectiveness of several design strategies involved in long-life, perpetual pavement designA.M.Khaki, E. Azadravesh. (2010)A 3D FE model is generated by ABAQUS for evaluating the effects of joint opening on load transfer efficiency in concrete pavementsRahman M.T , Mahmud K, Ahsan S. (2011)In this study, a 3D finite element model of flexible pavement is developed using ABAQUS for better prediction of mechanical behaviour and pavement performance subjected to various traffic factors.
6 LITERATURE REVIEW Researchers Research Area/Findings B. Sukumaran, V. Kyatham, A. Shah, D.Sheth. (2004)The stress-strain response of the various soils is simulated using an elasto-plastic model and von Mises strength criteria available in finite element code ABAQUS. The empirical relationship between CBR and resilient modulus is investigated based on the results obtained from the three dimensional finite element analyses.Gholam Ali Shafabakhsh, Abbas Akbari. (2013)3D modelling with help of finite element computer code ABAQUS has been used to determine the role of different parameters of passenger, commercial and military airplane’s main gear s which cause the major failures to the rigid runway pavements.Gholam Ali Shafabakhsh, Mana Motamedi, Afshin Family. (2013)This research, at first, tends to investigate influence of changing asphalt pavement thickness in vertical strain using finite element software (ABAQUS) and finally, the results related to the finite element, were compared with experimental data.

8 ABAQUSHuang et al. (2006) carried out finite element analysis to study the consolidation behaviour of an embankment on soft ground.Hadi and Bodhinayake (2003) carried out finite element analysis of road emabankment in ABAQUS.Kuo and Chou (2004) developed and analyzed a three dimensional model for flexible pavement using ABAQUS software
9 Jute Geotextile Application Bera et al. ( 2009 ) carried out series of unconfined compression strength tests of fly ash reinforced with jute geotextile.Chattopadhyay and Chakraborty ( 2009 ) studied the application of JGT as facilitator in drainage.Sahu et al. ( 2004 ) carried out model footing test to determine the behaviour of JGT reinforced soil bed and to asses aging effect of soil along with degradation of JGT with time

36 ConclusionsWith the introduction of JGT reinforcement in between subgrade and granular base layer the values of rut depth decreases significantly.Cyclic loading developed larger rut depth compared to static loading irrespective of types of road section.Stress developed on the subgrade top in case of JGT reinforced road section is much lesser than road section without reinforcement.ABAQUS software can effectively analyse the any types of road sections ( Reinforced & Unreinforced ). By using this software researcher may observe any types of load ( compressive/ tensile ), directions, deformations at any point.
