DEF

the ratio of the cycles to failure of the fabric reinforced specimens to the control specimen without fabric.

CONT

The key toward the reinforcement-based design of geotextiles in reflective crack prevention in bituminous pavement overlays is the fabric's effectiveness as determined by laboratory testing or experience. Quantitatively, it is defined as follows: FEF=Nr/Nn where FEF=fabric effectiveness factor, Nr=number of load cycles to cause failure in the fabric-reinforced case, Nn=number of load cycles to cause failure in the nonreinforced case. Values of FEF vary widely when based on laboratory tests (as they usually are), the range being from 2.1 to 15.9 ....
