Depending on the region, in a single year, the pavement undergoes many cycles of freezing and thawing. Freeze-thaw, as well as traffic loading, are important parameters in the study of damage in asphalt pavement. In areas of wide ranging temperatures, pavements are susceptible due to thermal cracking. This study investigates the effect of freeze-thaw on fatigue life and material characteristics of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) and binder. Since, temperature is variable throughout the year, a constant… 

Creep and Fatigue Performance of Partial VaporConditioned Asphalt Binder

Films of asphalt binders were prepared and partially vapor-conditioned in enclosed chambers at 25% Relative Humidity (RH), 49%RH, and 71%RH. Creep nanoindentation tests were performed on the partial

Etude expérimentale et numérique du comportement au gel et au dégel des enrobés bitumineux partiellement saturés

L’apparition massive de nids de poule sur chaussees bitumineuses a ete observee en cours d’hiver sur de tres courtes periodes de temps, caracterisees par l’alternance entre temperatures positives et



Impact of Gradation Types on Freeze-Thaw Performance of Asphalt Mixtures in Seasonal Frozen Region

Asphalt pavement performance in seasonal frozen region is affected severely by the freeze-thaw cycles. Gradation has important effects on asphalt mixture’s freeze-thaw durability. This paper

Inclusion of Moisture Effect in Fatigue Test for Asphalt Pavements

Damage of asphalt mixes due to moisture is a complex phenomenon. Conventional moisture-related tests do not well simulate field conditions, in which traffic loading is an essential component.

Fatigue life prediction of asphalt pavement based on cumulative damage

Splitting fatigue tests of AC-25 asphalt samples were carried out in stress control mode, and samples are suffering from one freeze-thaw cycle and without frozen-thaw. The stress fatigue equations


Any material property, such as the resilient modulus (M), that can be used directly in the elastic layer calculation for pavement structural design should be determined under test conditions that

Evaluation of Hot-Mix Asphalt Distress under Rapid Freeze-Thaw Cycles Using Image Processing Technique

One of the major distresses found in asphalt pavement layers is moisture damage due to rapid freezing and thawing in cold regions. The objectives of this study are to evaluate the stripping of fine

Study on Volume Performance of Conductive Asphalt Concrete Based on Freeze-Thaw Cycle

Conductive asphalt concrete, a kind of intelligent materials, can serve as asphalt solar collector, asphalt heater and self monitor. And moisture damage is one of the most common performance

Impact of Lime Modification of Asphalt and Freeze–Thaw Cycling on the Asphalt–Aggregate Interaction and Moisture Resistance to Moisture Damage

Experiments were performed to investigate the impact on the moisture resistance of paving mixtures of the addition of hydrated lime directly to the asphalt prior to mixture preparation. Moisture
