Contents Introduction and fundamentals for mathematics and continuum mechanics -- Mechanical properties of constituents -- Microstructure characterization -- Experimental methods to characterize the heterogeneous strain field -- Mixture theory and micromechanics applications -- Fundamentals of phenomenological models -- Models for asphalt concrete -- Finite element method and boundary element method -- Applications of discrete element method -- Digital specimen and digital test-integration of microstructure into simulation -- Simulation of asphalt compaction -- Characterization and modeling anisotropic properties of asphalt concrete -- Multiscale modeling and moisture damage.
Summary "Mechanics of Asphalt systematically covers both the fundamentals and most recent developments in applying rational mechanics, microstructure characterization methods, and numerical tools to understand the behavior of asphalt concrete (AC). The book describes the essential mathematics, mechanics, and numerical techniques required for comprehending advanced modeling and simulation of asphalt materials and asphalt pavements. Filled with detailed illustrations, this authoritative volume provides rational mechanisms to guide the development of best practices in mix design, construction methods, and performance evaluation of asphalt concrete."
