Ten Things You Want to Know About Delta Tc

This article summarizes a recent document from the Asphalt Institute regarding use of the Delta Tc parameter to characterize asphalt binder behavior. Delta Tc is an asphalt binder parameter that can be use to determine physical properties to help ensure long-term asphalt pavement durability performance. Delta Tc targets cracking behavior that is affected by asphalt binder durability related to aging of the binder in an asphalt mixture. This provides information about the relaxation properties of a binder that can be an aspect of non-load-related cracking or other age-related embrittlement pavement distress. The author answers 10 short questions about Delta Tc and refers readers to the full report (http://www.asphaltinstitute.org/engineering/delta-tc-technical-document/).
