Abstract
Bitumen type and content are two of the variables that most influence on the cracking resistance of an asphalt mixture, since both determine a more or less ductile fracture. Furthermore, this cracking resistance will be different depending on the temperature at which the mixture is exposed and is especially critical at low temperatures. The effect of bitumen type and content on the cracking resistance and fracture energy of an asphalt concrete mixture is analysed in this paper, by means of a new...
