56 Characterizing the Fatigue Life of Asphalt Concrete
Download citation file:
The fatigue behavior of asphalt concrete is very complicated that a comprehensive fundamental theoretical model is not available. Therefore, a reliable empirical method for predicting fatigue life based on experimental data remains a desirable approach. However, the complexity of the fatigue process and the noise associated with the fatigue test results make even the traditional empirical methods, such as regression analysis, handicapped in producing a sufficiently accurate model. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) have the ability to derive considerable complex relationships and associations from experimental data while filtering out the effect of noisy data. In this study, the potential use of...
