ABSTRACT

This research was conducted on the Surakarta-Gemolong-Geyer provincial road which is suspected to be built on expansive soil using the ATENA V5 3D software program. ATENA program can be used to simulate crack propagation in concrete and reinforced concrete structures. This study uses quantitative analysis methods, to the analysis of fracture patterns of rigid pavements with transverse reinforcement on expansive soils. Rigid pavement is modeled into 2 types, namely rigid transverse reinforced pavement models due to swelling pressure forces on expansive soils and transverse reinforced rigid pavements without swelling pressure forces on expansive soils. The swelling test on the soil carried out in the laboratory was 37 kPa. The rigid pavement model is subjected to load testing. The load used is the standard load of a medium-sized truck. The repetition of loading used is 30 times. The loading is divided into 3 types, namely: edge, center, and corner loading. The results of the analysis of rigid pavements were compared between rigid pavements due to swelling pressure forces on expansive soils with rigid pavements without swelling pressure forces. The results of the analysis from the ATENA software program show that every loading test on rigid pavement due to swelling pressure forces cracks greater than loading without swelling pressure forces. Edge loading shows that cracks due to swelling pressure are 3.5% higher than those without swelling pressure. Middle loading shows cracks due to swelling pressure which is 8.33% greater. Middle loading shows that cracks due to swelling pressure are 3.56% higher than without swelling pressure. This research can be used as a reference and prediction in identifying cracks that occur so that the government can carry out appropriate design planning and maintenance and rehabilitation of rigid pavements on expansive soils.
