EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE, FREEZE-THAW, AND VARIOUS MOISTURE CONDITIONS ON THE RESILIENT MODULUS OF ASPHALT-TREATED MIXES

Any material property, such as the resilient modulus (M), that can be used directly in the elastic layer calculation for pavement structural design should be determined under test conditions that simulate or reflect the actual conditions to be expected in the pavement. This study explored the effects of realistic variations of temperature, moisture, and freeze-thaw conditions on the M of a representative spectrum of asphalt-treated mixes, some of which contain lime or cement. A method is proposed that allows the M to be estimated at any temperature from -20 to 140 F from 2 M measurements. Suggestions are made on how the various findings can be used in pavement design procedures with a minimum of testing.
