Definitions for "Rutting"
The result of repetitive traffic use and load bearing. Faults occur due to exceeding pavements capacity.
The deformation of the pavement surface generally in the wheel path.
Permanent deformation from repetitive traffic loading that exceeds the ability of the pavement structure to maintain its original profile.
Tracks in the soil resulting from the passage of heavy equipment.
Depressions made by the tires or tracks of equipment such as skidders, log trucks, pickups, etc. usually under wet conditions.
