The meaning of sie values for binders is related to performance on the roads in terms of visco-elastic behaviour. The cohesive strength of tar alone is shown to be capable of withstanding traffic stresses in the visco-elastic range which extends from the evt to a temperature some 50 to 60 deg C lower. Weathering on the roads results in an apparent narrowing of the visco-elastic region. /Author/TRRL/
