Abstract: 
The crack is caused on the surface of the overlay layer at an early stage by the movement of the pavement with the temperature change in the pavement and traffic load. When the method in which Stress Absorbing Membrane Interlayer (SAMI) can be applied to delay crack arises on the surface.
The test that simulated the horizontal movement with the effect of the overlay with the SAMI was carried out.
As a result, it became clear that stress absorbing effects of SAMI and stone matrix asphalt (SMA) were high for the horizontal expand and contract test. In addition, the investigation data of experimental pavement was analyzed by the finite element analysis (FEM) and the prediction procedure of the necessary overlay thickness was also examined from the FWD measurement result in the field.
