MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF BITUMINOUS MATERIALS

In this paper the author considers that an analytical approach to the design of pavement materials is necessary rather than dependance upon recipe type specifications for desired mechanical properties. Modes of failure of pavement structure are considered and a description given of bending and triaxial tests for bituminous materials. The importance of mix stiffness is stated, and a description given of the us dynamic stiffness test which may be used also for determination of fatigue resistance. Reference is made to the unconfined creep test for estimating permanent deformation of material. A summary of the present situation regarding testing in Britain is stated in conclusion. /TRRL/
