Why Numerical Analysis?
SELECTION OF NUMERICAL TOOL
LITERATURE REVIEW ResearchersResearch 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 cracking R. 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 layers W.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.
LITERATURE REVIEW ResearchersResearch 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 subroutine Grace G. Abou-Jaoude, Ziad G. Ghauch A 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 design A.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 pavements Rahman 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.
LITERATURE REVIEW ResearchersResearch 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.
