Abstract
Asphalt binder characterization is a complex and difficult task due to its rheological behaviour. Indeed it has been traditionally realized by means of simple tests at an established temperature. An added challenge is that low temperatures, as well as binder aging, lead to significant changes in the viscoelastic behaviour of binders. This study aimed to characterize asphalt binders, not through the traditional procedures, but through the ductility and tenacity that they provide to a mixture, bei...
