Apr 01, 2021  Cracking is a major distress in asphalt pavements. Essentially, it starts with a crack initiation phase in which a series of interconnected micro-cracks appear on the mixture’s intact surface, then migrates to a crack propagation phase as the micro-cracks coalesce to form visible macro-cracks until the failure of the entire asphalt mixture [].In general, such cracking manifested in these ...

Analysis of Fatigue and Fracture of Hot Mix Asphalt Mixtures

An accurate assessment of the fatigue life of hot mix asphalt (HMA) mixtures depends on the criteria used in the fatigue analysis. In the past, various studies have been conducted on crack initiation and crack propagation of the HMA mixtures. Most of these studies were focused on the beam samples with or without a sawed crack at the bottom. This paper presents and discusses two different ...
