Abstract
Although cracking resistance is one of the most important properties affecting the durability of asphalt mixtures, this property is often not considered as a requirement in the mixture design stage, and the bitumen content is determined from other properties (voids content, permanent deformation, or water sensitivity, etc...). The effect of bitumen content on the cracking resistance of an asphalt concrete mixture (type AC) was analyzed in this paper by means of different types of tests. Firstly,...
