Abstract

The main property that influences the performance of an open graded pavement is the drainage capability. Traditionally a conceptual/empirical approach, based on laboratory tests or measures in the field, is followed to identify hydraulic characteristics of the pavement. This approach is not of great effectiveness to optimize and support the mix design. In order to solve this optimization problem, in this paper, a full numerical model is used to simulate the unsteady flow of water through an open-graded asphalt mixes. This model allow to evaluate the permeability by a full numerical procedure.
