Rutting studies of 100 mm thick bituminous concrete mix with plain and modified binders at varying temperatures

The present study involves determination of rutting characteristics on 100 mm thick beams of bituminous concrete mixes, i.e., number of passes of the roller and the maximum rut depth for varying temperatures (30°C, 35°C, 40°C, 45°C and 50°C) at a constant tire pressure of 7.2 kg/cm² tested using three binders VG-10 grade, CRMB-60 grade and PMB-70 grade with treaded wheel. The rut depth values are correlated and analysed with number of passes at 20 mm max rut depth, varying temperature and plain wheel configuration. The results are analyzed; it is found that modified binders resist rutting compared to conventional binder. PMB-70 grade binder perform better than VG-10 grade and CRMB-60 grade binders under the laboratory induced applied pressures and number of passes.
