Finite Component Approach for Modelling Entropy of Motor Road Pavements to Assess Their Efficiency

  •  Mikhail Gennadjevich Goryachev    


In statistical physics, the irreversible processes are characterized by the same value as entropy. Entropy represents a measure of system disorder consisting of many components. Originally ordered systems in irreversible processes lose their order, so that the system entropy increases. Therefore, one can judge by the size of entropy about the degree of order in the system. This article gives a brief description of the new physical and mathematical solution taken as a basis of the model of entropy accumulation and defects development processes within the motor road pavements for the prognosis and evaluation of their operational integrity and durability.
