Abstract

Two important application of a recently developed moving load model are described. The model uses an efficient semi analytical "finite layer" formulation of the porous medium. One application is a response of a layered sandy nonlinear porous medium, while the other is a viscoelastic pavement layer system. The study reveals that the properties of the layers and porefluid and the moving velocity of the load are important factors that affect the response of the layered system.

Dynamic Modeling of Layered Systems to Moving Surface Loads: Applications

St. Louis, Missouri

Two important application of a recently developed moving load model are described. The model uses an efficient semi analytical "finite layer" formulation of the porous medium. One application is a response of a layered sandy nonlinear porous medium, while the other is a viscoelastic pavement layer system. The study reveals that the properties of the layers and porefluid and the moving velocity of the load are important factors that affect the response of the layered system.
