asphalt concrete pa vements: Theoretical/nu merical ...

Distresses concentrated in asphalt concrete (AC) layer can lead to the failure of the pavement structure over time. The maximum tensile stresses are commonly developed at the bottom of the AC layer under repetitive loadings. As a result, cracks usually initiate at the bottom of the asphalt layer and start propagating to the surface of the pavement.
