Evaluation of water damage using hot mix asphalt fracture mechanics Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Nondestructive testing was used to identify and isolate the effects of pore water in mixtures after conditioning. Based on the results from the nondestructive testing, SuperPave IDT creep, resilient modulus, and strength tests were performed on conditioned and unconditioned mixtures without the complicating effects of the presence of pore water. The results illustrate the effects of moisture damage on the fracture properties of mixtures and the influence of aggregate type and gradation characteristics on moisture damage susceptibility.
