FLEXURE CRACKING IN BITUMINOUS MIXTURES /IN ITALIAN/

THE ARTICLE DISCUSSES THE FLEXURE CRACKING DUE TO DEFLEXION, OF BITUMINOUS CARPETS. IT RESULTS FROM FATIGUE IN THE BITUMINOUS MIXTURE OF THE UPPER LAYERS, AND IS CAUSED BY TEMPERATURE VARIATION TOGETHER WITH THE REPEATED DEFLEXION PRODUCED BY VEHICLES. THE AUTHOR SUGGESTS THAT BITUMENS WITH A LOW SENSIBILITY TO THERMIC VARIATION, USUALLY CONFINED TO INDUSTRIAL USES, MAY PROFITABLY BE EXTENDED TO ROADS, SINCE THE HIGHER COST OF THE MATERIAL COULD BE COMPENSATED FOR BY INCREASED DURABILITY OF THE PAVEMENT. /RRL/
