Impact of climate change on pavements
3GIE Laboratory, Mohammedia Engineering School, Mohammed V University in Rabat-Morocco
Climate change is reflected in changes in average weather conditions and the more frequent occurrence of extreme conditions. It also affects the field of road transport and shows impacts both on traffic and road users as well as on the road infrastructure itself.
The main objective of this work is therefore to evaluate the impact of climate change on the performance of road infrastructure (pavements) and to educe recommendations through proposals for adaptation measures.
The impacts of climate change on road infrastructure result in changes in some road design parameters (average temperatures, radiation index, etc.).
The different cases of cracking (fatigue or other) are assessed separately using degradation indices for each layer composing a pavement (surface layer, base layer, stabilized layer, etc.)
Key words: climate change / weather conditions / pavements
