General Information


Computer Aided Pavement Analysis


CAPA-3D (Computer Aided Pavement Analysis) is a linear/non-linear, static/dynamic finite element system.


Mechanics of Structural Systems, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Stevinweg 1, Delft (building #23)

Key words:

ZOAB, behaviour, concrete, asphalt, stress, strain rate, mastic, debonding, mastic-aggregate interface

Main application:

CAPA-3D is for the solution of very large scale three dimensional solid models as those typically encountered in pavement and soil engineering. As such it can simulate a very broad range of engineering materials under various loading conditions.

Instrument specification

CAPA-3D consists of a sophisticated user interface, a powerful band-optimising mesh generator, high quality user controlled graphical output,several material and element types, and a variety of specialised algorithms for the efficient analysis of pavement constructions. Among others, these include algorithms for the simulation of the mechanical response of fully and partially saturated multiphase media, a dynamic contact algorithm and a rolling wheel simulation facility.
