TESTING THE DEFORMATION OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES UNDER DYNAMIC LOADING

THE PLASTIC DEFORMATION OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES DEPENDS ON A NUMBER OF PARAMETERS, THE MOST IMPORTANT OF WHICH ARE THE INTENSITY OF THE LOADING, THE TEMPERATURE CONDITIONS AND THE HARDNESS OF THE BITUMEN. DYNAMIC TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT AND IT WAS SHOWN THAT THE HEIGHT FROM WHICH THE LOAD WAS DROPPED HAD A GREATER EFFECT ON DEFORMATION THAN THE NUMBER OF LOAD CYCLES. IT WAS ALSO SHOWN THAT THE INFLUENCE OF TEMPERATURE AND THE HARDNESS OF THE BITUMEN WAS VERY GREAT. /TRRL/
