AbstractA compressive model for predicting thermal cracking events in asphalt pavements that accounts for the continuous evolution of the asphalt mixture properties with oxidative ageing over time has been developed. The model also considers temperature-dependent coefficient of thermal contraction (CTC) for the calculation of thermal strain in the asphalt by: 4. cantly alter the thermal cracking properties of an asphalt mix. Using the thermal stress restrained specimen test, Jung and Vinson (17) showed that the low-temperature performance of the mix is influenced 1 by the thermal and mechanical properties of the binder.

CHARACTERISTICS AND PREDICTION OF THE LOW TEMPERATURE INDIRECT TENSILE STRENGTHS OF MICHIGAN ASPHALT MIXTURES By Michael Krcmarik A THESIS Figure 10 Laboratory measured total fracture work for MDOT Mix ESAL designation categories and asphalt binder, creating thermal stresses which manifest as transverse cracking perpendicular. Thermal cracking is one of the primary forms of distress in asphalt concrete pavements, resulting from either a single drop in temperature to an extreme low or from multiple temperature cycles above the fracture temperature of the asphalt-aggregate mixture. The first mode described is low temperature cracking; the second is thermal fatigue. The addition of crumb-rubber, Cited by:

The objective of this study was to develop approximate relationships for prediction of the rheological properties and tensile strength of asphalt concrete with conventional bitumen binder to address the low-temperature cracking analysis.
road structure and importantly the properties of the asphalt mixture. The thermal cracking performance of asphalt concrete mixtures can be evaluated by conducting thermal stress restrained specimen tests (TSRST) which is known to be correlated well with the fracture temperatures observed in the field.

N2 - Thermal cracking is a serious type of pavement distress and its prevention is a critical issue for many transportation agencies around the by: Rate of dissipated pseudostrain energy, pseudo J-Integral, and the fracture parameters (A and n) were then calculated for all the experimental combinations, and two empirical models were developed to predict the fracture parameters based on the viscoelastic properties of asphalt mixes.
Finally, the thermal fatigue lives of asphalt mixes were obtained based on the change in the ratio of cumulative dissipated pseudostrain energy as the criterion identifying the thermal fatigue crack.

With the expanded capabilities of the computer model, it will be possible to develop preliminary thermal stress maps of asphalt pavements during seasonal and diurnal freeze/thaw cycles. Abstract. The paper presents the results of calculations and laboratory determination of thermal stressesat low temperatures.
The modified Hills and Brien’s method was used to calculate the thermal stresses in asphalt layers of pavements and the results were compared againstthe values obtained at a laboratory with the Thermal Stress Restrained Specimen Test (TSRST) Cited by: 5.
Fatigue cracking, in the perspective of asphalt pavements, is defined as the accumulation. of damage under repeated load applications (Pell ). As a vehicle passes over a point within a. pavement, tensile stress is generated at the bottom of the HMA layer.
As part of the SHRP program, the Thermal Stress Restrained Specimen Test (TSRST) for asphalt mixes was investigated as a tool to predict performance from a relatively fast and simple test. When the temperature decreases, although the strength of the asphalt mixture will increase, the thermal stress in the asphalt mixture will also increase; sometimes, it will surpass the material strength and cause thermal cracking.
temperature (thermal) cracking, one of the main types of pavement distress, contributes partly to this economic loss, and comes about as a result of accumulated tensile strains exceeding the threshold tensile strain capacity of the pavement.
