Laboratory Tests Concerning Fatigue Behavior of Asphalt Mixtures

The study of fatigue behaviour on asphalt mixtures has a particular importance, both to estimate the degradation that can occur during service period in the asphalt layer under external loads (traffic, climate) and to consider the fatigue laws that should be taken into account in asphalt pavement design. The European Standard adopted in the country, SR EN 13108:20 stipulates some tests for determining fatigue resistance of asphalt mixtures, including the 4PB-PR test (four-point bending test on prismatic samples). The goal of this paper is to emphasize the results (fatigue resistance and stiffness) obtained in the Road Laboratory of Technical University of Civil Engineering. The results were obtained using some types of asphalt mixtures with the PMB binder (asphalt mixtures used in Romania). Conclusions will be presented in the form of comparative charts.
