Linear Viscoelastic Behaviour of Polyacrylate Binders and Bitumen Blends
(Taylor & Francis, 2008)
This paper describes the linear viscoelastic (LVE) dynamic oscillatory properties of synthetic binders, as well as synthetic binder—bitumen blends, that have been synthesised from acrylic monomers by atom transfer radical ...
The effect of asphalt mixture gradation and compaction energy on aggregate degradation
This paper investigates the influence of asphalt mixture type (aggregate gradation) and compaction energy level on the degradation of aggregate during laboratory compaction. The most severe form of laboratory compaction ...
Indirect Tensile versus Two-point Bending Fatigue Testing
(ICE Publishing, 2008-11)
This paper describes a comparison between an indirect tensile fatigue method and the currently preferred European standard two-point bending, trapezoidal fatigue test. A study was undertaken using both tests to determine ...
The influence of aggregate, filler and bitumen on asphalt mixture moisture damage
Moisture damage in an asphalt mixture can be defined as the loss of strength, stiffness and durability due to the presence of moisture leading to adhesive failure at the binder–aggregate interface and/or cohesive failure ...
