Viscoelastic repetitive creep and recovery in bituminous materials


AbstractRepetitive creep and recovery tests in bituminous materials- asphalt and asphalt paving mix are studied at high service temperatures. The non-exponential- stretched exponential type of continuous retardation spectrum is defined and used for the calculation of creep compliance function in repetitive shear and tensile creep and recovery experiments and also in the wheel tracking test on asphalt paving mix. It is shown that the used model, with only five adjustable parameters, can describe the test quite well. The model is also adequate for the description of the composite compliance function constructed from the linear viscoelastic data and the apparently nonlinear compliance function obtained in the wheel tracking test, for asphalt paving mix
