MEASUREMENT OF VISCO-ELASTIC PROPERTIES OF BITUMENS UNDER DYNAMIC LOADING

A METHOD OF MEASURING THE VISCO-ELASTIC PARAMETERS OF VERY SMALL SAMPLES OF BITUMENS AND TARS UNDER VIBRATION IS DESCRIBED. THE THEORY OF THE METHOD AND FULL EXPERIMENTAL DETAILS ARE GIVEN, AND RESULTS ARE PRESENTED FOR SEVEN DIFFERENT MATERIALS OVER A FREQUENCY RANGE OF 40 TO 1,000 HZ AND OVER A TEMPERATURE RANGE OF APPROXIMATELY 0 TO 20 C. INTERPRETATION OF THESE DATA IN TERMS OF THE MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF BITUMENS ON THE ROAD IS DISCUSSED, AND A "DYNAMIC MERIT RATING" OF A BITUMEN AS A FUNCTION OF TEMPERATURE IS PROPOSED. /AUTHOR/
