COMPARISON OF SUPERPAVE AND OTHER MODELS FOR PREDICTING LOW-TEMPERATURE ASPHALT PAVEMENT CRACKING

A major asphalt pavement problem in cold climates is that of cracking at low temperatures. One of the most recent initiatives undertaken to address the problem is the Strategic Highway Research Program's (SHRP) SUPERPAVE package. The research described in this paper uses a simpler method, developed over two decades ago, to characterize asphalt mixes at low temperatures, to estimate their fracture temperatures and then to compare the resulting cracking frequency predictions with those of SUPERPAVE.
