Assessing Performance of Geosynthetic Reinforced Pavement with a Large-Scale Track Wheel Test and Nondestructive Testing Tools

This study will evaluate the mechanical performance of a geosynthetic-reinforced pavement system at different layers of the pavement by using a large-scale wheel track (LSTW) test installed with various innovative sensors such as fiber optic cables, ultrasonic sensors, LVDTs, pressure cells. Also, the numerical simulation will be conducted for a full-scale roadway pavement reinforced with geosynthetics at the different layers.
