NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF THE COMPLEX MODULUS MASTER CURVE OF ASPHALT CONCRETE SPECIMENS
Additional Document Info
2013 American Institute of Physics. The dynamic Young's modulus of asphalt concrete is directly related to pavement quality and is used in thickness design of pavements. There is a need for a nondestructive laboratory method to evaluate the complex modulus, which can be linked to nondestructive field measurements. This study applies seismic measurements to an asphalt concrete beam where resonant acoustic spectroscopy and optimization of frequency response functions are used to estimate the complex moduli. A good estimation of the master curve is obtained.
