In the flexible road pavement design a mechanistic model of a
multilayered half-space with linear elastic or viscoelastic layers is
usually used for the pavement analysis.
This paper describes a domain selection for the purpose of a FE model
creating of the linear elastic layered half-space and boundary
conditions on borders of that domain. This FE model should guarantee
that the key components of displacements, stresses and strains obtained
using ABAQUS program would be in particular identical with those ones
obtained by analytical method using VEROAD program.
It to achieve matching results with both methods is relatively easy for
stresses and strains. However, for displacements, using FEM to obtain
correct results is (understandably) highly problematic due to infinity
of half-space. This paper proposes an original method of overcoming
