THE ROLE OF THE POLYMERISATION OF BITUMENS IN THE AGEING OF HIGHWAY SURFACINGS

ROL'POLIMERIZATSIONNYKH PORTSESSOV BITUMA V STARENII ASFAL'TOBETONNYKH DOROZHNYKH POKRYTIJ

The author gives the results of ageing tests on three cut-back bitumens, containing various fines, placed in special containers on a highway over a period of one year. The degree of polymerisation was estimated from measurements of viscosity linked to the asphaltene concentration. The interpretation of the results allows the author to classify the fines as a function of their catalysing effect on the ageing of bitumen. /TRRL/
