Abstract [en]

Four instrumented test road structures have been built in northern Sweden about 100 km north of the Arctic Circle. The climate consists of cold winters and mild summers with a long spring thaw period. The pavement structures differs in material quality ranging from conventional to polymer modified structures. The objective of the test structures is to see the difference in their behaviour and performance due to the heavy loading in the ambient artic climate. Each test section is instrumented that includes pressure cells and strain sensors that measure the pavement response to external loading. Climatic variables are further monitored through a weather station as well as temperature and moisture sensors installed in the road structure. Response measurements have been carried out using 90 tons vehicles consisting of a single wheel steering axle, and triple dual wheel tridem axles. Rutting development has been monitored through four years showing some difference between the structures rutting development.
