Abstract

Different types of model pavements were subjected to forced vertical vibration with a view to studying the attenuation properties of Rayleigh Waves. The effect of the road base materials is studied along with the effect of the change in the thickness of the wearing course. The effect of different corner angles at the edge of the road is also investigated. The characteristics of geometric and material damping are discussed in relation to transmission and attenuation of vibration.
