Modeling and simulation in road construction

The current standard methods for the computational design of roads are essentially several decades old and their scope of modeling is limited, e.g. to linear material behavior. It is therefore necessary to develop numerical simulation models that can be used as an optimization tool for the efficient development of new construction materials, but also for the improvement of existing construction materials.
