  1. 1. Thermally Induced Fracture Performance of Asphalt Mixtures

    Författare :Prabir Kumar Das; Björn Birgisson; Dallas Little; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Low temperature cracking; asphalt concrete fracture mechanics; viscoelasticity; non-linear thermal contraction coefficient; atomic force microscopy; wax; wax crystallization; SRA - Transport; SRA - Transport;

    Sammanfattning : A major distress mode in asphalt pavements is low temperature cracking, which results from the contraction and expansion of the asphalt pavement under extreme temperature changes. The potential for low temperature cracking is an interplay between the environment, the road structure and importantly the properties of the asphalt mixture. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Development of Energy-based Damage and Plasticity Models for Asphalt Concrete Mixtures

    Författare :Ibrahim Onifade; Björn Birgisson; Linbing Wang; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; energy-based models; damage; X-ray computed tomography; continuum plasticity mechanics CPM; effective micro-crack stress; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : Characterizing the full range of damage and plastic behaviour of asphalt mixtures under varying strain-rates and stress states is a complex and challenging task. One reason for this  is partly due to the strain rate and temperature dependent nature of the material as well as the variation in the properties of the constituent materials that make up the composite asphalt mixture.
