Abstract
This paper presents a new direct tensile test to evaluate cracking resistance of asphalt concrete mixtures called Fénix test. First, the literature on cracking factors and mechanisms of bituminous mixtures as well as current tests to measure cracking properties are reviewed. Next, the Fénix test is described and some initial experimental results of the influence of variables such as binder type and content and test temperature are provided. Additionally, test repeatability and sensitivity are ...
