A Numerical Method for Modelling Discontinuous Mechanics of Asphalt Mixture

           Zhou Changhong, Zhao Yanqing, and Wang Zheren

Full text:  PDF


In order to simulate discontinuous mechanics for asphalt mixture pavement, a new numerical scheme— Meshfree Manifold Method is deduced in this paper by integrating Numerical Manifold Method and Mesh-free Method, which is not only appropriate for contact computation but easy to eliminate the limitation of regular mesh. Some kernel principles are discussedand an example is given to prove its efficiency in simulating discontinuous deformation of asphalt mixture.
