Abstract
The aim of this study is to characterize the cracking resistance of several bituminous mixtures using Fenix test at different temperatures (from 30 degrees C to -30 degrees C) in order to minimize the phenomenon of reflective cracking in pavements. This direct tensile strength test evaluates the cracking resistance of asphalt mixes by calculating the energy dissipated during mixture cracking.; Different types of bituminous mixtures containing different types of bitumen to obtain a wide stiffness...
