CHARACTERIZATION OF ASPHALT PAVEMENT MATERIALS USING THE INDIRECT TENSILE TEST

The techniques and procedures for obtaining the needed fundamental properties through use of the indirect tensile test are reviewed and the evaluation of these properties is summarized. The indirect tensile test described can be used to characterize asphalt materials in terms of resilient elastic properties, properties related to thermal cracking, properties related to fatigue cracking, and properties related to permanent deformation.
