Abstract
Modelling of mechanical behaviour of asphalt pavements has been fundamentally based on bituminous materials’ fatigue cracking resistance. Analytical softwares allow estimating stresses that are generated by traffic and from such stresses and fatigue laws, service life of the pavement can be deduced. These calculations are based on laboratory tests carried on recently fabricated mixtures and do not take into account aging processes that could accelerate cracking. The Road Research Laboratory of...
