COMPLEX MODULUS OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES

MODULE COMPLEXE DES MELANGES BITUMINEUX

THE AUTHOR PRESENTS A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF DIFFERENT METHODS OF DETERMINING MODULI AND PROPOSES TO CALCULATE THE COMPLEX MODULUS FROM THE BULK DENSITY OF THE MIXTURE, PENETRATION AND ASPHALTENE CONTENT OF THE BITUMEN USING NUMEROUS RESULTS OBTAINED ON TRAPEZOIDAL SAMPLES SUBJECTED TO SINUSOIDAL ALTERNATE BENDING AND PREPARED BY STATIC COMPACTION OF SEVERAL MIX-DESIGN MIXTURES. A COMPARISON IS MADE OF CALCULATED AND MEASURED VALUES, AND IT IS SHOWN THAT A GOOD AGREEMENT EXISTS, AT LEAST A SUFFICIENT AGREEMENT FOR PAVEMENT DESIGN CALCULATIONS. FOR THE COVERING ABSTRACT, SEE IRRD ABSTRACT NO 107043.
