Performance Evaluation and Field Application of Hard Asphalt Concrete under Heavy Traffic Conditions

In order to improve the service performance of asphalt pavement under high temperature and rain during summer under heavy traffic conditions, this research compared the pavement performance of hard, heavy-duty AH-70, and Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) polymer-modified asphalt mixtures through high temperature performance, low temperature crack resistance, fatigue resistance, and water stability tests. Results indicate that 30# hard asphalt mixture remarkably improves high temperature performance compared with 70# and 70# SBS asphalt mixtures. Moreover, the water stability of these asphalt mixtures is comparable. The fatigue performance of 30# hard asphalt mixture is comparable with that of 70# asphalt mixture. Finally, after 10 years of pavement performance, the hard asphalt concrete pavement structure achieved the best road conditions.
