Each time vehicle passes over pavement, surface is deflected and rebounds, creating strain conditions for 0.01 to 0.1 sec; methods used in Netherlands for simulating and studying such dynamic conditions in pavements, base courses, and subgrades; use of single frequency monochromatic wave vibrator and of three point bending machine for determination of dynamic E-modulus and strength of asphaltic mixtures.
