AASHTO TP 101
Standard Method of Test for Estimating Fatigue Resistance of Asphalt Binders Using the Linear Amplitude Sweep
|Publication Date:||1 January 2012|
This test method covers the determination of an asphalt binder's resistance to fatigue damage by means of cyclic loading employing systematic, linearly increasing load amplitudes. The amplitude sweep is conducted using the Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR) at the intermediate pavement temperature determined from the performance grade (PG) of the asphalt binder according to M 320. The test method can be used with binder aged using T 240 (RTFOT) and R 28 (PAV) to simulate the aging for in-service asphalt pavements.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
