Modelling Linear Viscoelastic Properties of Asphalt Concrete by the Huet–Sayegh Model

In order to seek an appropriate mechanical model to describe the complex modulus and characterise the linear viscoelastic property of asphalt concrete, the Huet–Sayegh model was studied in this research. Laboratory tests of complex modulus were conducted on 20 different mixtures. Several mechanical models (Maxwell, Kelvin, generalised Maxwell, generalised Kelvin and Huet–Sayegh) and the mathematical model of sigmoidal function were applied to establish master curves of dynamic moduli. Results indicate that the Huet–Sayegh model can describe complex modulus more accurately using fewer numbers of parameters compared with other mechanical models.
