A THERMOVISCOELASTIC CHARACTERIZATION OF AN ASPHALTIC CONCRETE

MATERIAL PROPERTIES IN THE UNIAXIAL TENSION AND COMPRESSION MODES WERE OBTAINED FOR TWO COMPACTED ASPHALTIC MIXTURES FOR VARIOUS TEMPERATURES AND RATES OF LOADING. THE FIRST MIXTURE WAS PREHEATED AND COMPACTED AT 300F WHEREAS THE SECOND MIXTURE WAS PROCESSED AT 450F; THUS, THE EMBRITTLEMENT DUE TO OVERHEATING WITH THE COMPACTIVE EFFORT CONSTANT WAS QUANTIFIED. THE RESULTS SHOW THAT STRESS SHOULD NOT BE USED AND STRAIN COULD BE USED FOR ASSESSING MATERIAL PERFORMANCE. /AUTHOR/
