Most of the research results are based on a large number of repeated load tests, and the skeleton curves are determined by the experimental analysis of data fitting statistics.

When the conventional binder was replaced with asphalt rubber binder, it was noted that the change in binders alone reduced the cost per repeated load by over 40% for the three different applied loadings.
Yield conditions determine the vector of the statically admissible residual forces [N.sub.r] = G[lambda], ensuring the shakedown of the elastic-plastic system under the given variable repeated load (G is the influence matrix of residual forces).
Universal Materials Testing Apparatus (UMATTA) was used to determine the repeated load indirect tensile test as a method of assessing the fatigue resistance of bituminous materials.
A laboratory program was conducted by geotechnical characterization, bearing capacity and repeated load triaxial tests.
Distal region results were also observed to be consistent and indicate that interface was good enough to sustain repeated load, Surrounding bone material was strong enough to take up the load that was transferred to bone from prosthesis.
The FHWA engineers analyzed the asphalt mixtures in the SPT using two performance tests, dynamic modulus and repeated load test, as described in "Three Tests Included in the Superpave Performance Tester" on page 39.
