Abstract:This report describes a major enhancement to the Integrated Climatic Model. The Integrated Climatic Model is a one-dimensional coupled heat and moisture flow program that is intended for use in analyzing pavement-soil systems. It has the capability of generating internally realistic patterns of rainfall, solar radiation, cloud cover, wind speed, and air temperature to simulate the upper boundary conditions of a pavement-soil system. It has a variety of options for specifying the moisture and temperature, or the flux of these at the lower boundary and at the interface between the subgrade and the base course. It considers the lateral and vertical drainage of the base course in determining the amount of water that enters the subgrade by infiltration through the pavement surface and drainage through the base course. The program calculates the temperature, pore pressure, moisture content and resilient modulus for each node in the profile for the entire analysis period. This program also predicts frost behavior, including heave and penetration depth; thermal gradient and curl strain in the pavement layers; and infiltration and drainage of the base course.
