Bituminous concrete is often used for the construction of road surfaces and revetments for embankments. For the design of such structures in bituminous conctrete the linear elastic model for mechanical behaviour is most often used. This limits the possibilities for analysing and predicting deformations such as rut formation for road surfaces and uplift for revetments of embankments which often occur in practice.
The main aim of this study is to develop a constitutive model for bituminous concrete. The second aim is to develop numerical procedures and implement these procedures in a finite element program (PLAXIS) which can be used for the analysis of practical structures.
