1 1 Behavior of Asphalt Binder and Asphalt Concrete

2 2 Mixture Classification type of binder  asphalt cement  liquid asphalt aggregate gradation  dense-graded (well-graded)  open-graded production method  hot-mix (hot-laid)**  cold-mix (cold-laid)

3 3 AC Mix Design Asphalt Concrete = binder + aggregate select & proportion components that provide adequate performance over design reasonable cost VOLUMETRIC process  V air > 3% to preclude bleeding, instability  V air < 8% for durability  V asp to coat, bind, & satisfy (absorption) agg WEIGH components in production

4 4 AC Mix Design adequate performance assessed based on MIXTURE PROPERTIES stiffness stability durability flexibility fatigue resistance fracture (tensile) strength thermal characteristics skid resistance permeability workability

5 5 CONCRETE ASPHALT CONCRETE MIXTURES Asphalt Concrete = binder + aggregate 3 stages of Life  mixing (fluid asphalt cement)  curing (viscoelastic solid)  aging (environmental effects & loading)

31 31 Description of Asphalt Concrete Particulate composite material that consists of:  Aggregates.  Asphalt.  Air voids.

32 32 Review of the Properties of Particulate Composites The properties of the composite can be calculated from the properties of the constituents. For simplicity, assume asphalt concrete to be represented by particulate (aggregates), and matrix (asphalt and air). Also, assume elastic behavior.

33 33 Parallel Model The particulate and matrix carry the same strain. V p = volume of particulate V m = volume of matrix Used to describe soft particles in a hard matrix

34 34 Series Model The particulate and matrix carry the same stress. Used to describe hard particles in a soft matrix

35 35 Hirsch’s Model X: represents the degree of bonding

37 37 Viscoelastic Models Viscoelastic Model: Mathematical expression for the relationship between stress, strain, and strain rate. Combinations of basic rheological models. The combinations mean that there are different mechanisms due to different chemical and physical interactions that govern the response.

44 44 Shear Stress Shear Rate Shear Stress Shear Rate Viscous Behavior of Fluids Non Newtonian Shear Thinning Non Newtonian Shear Thickening Increase in viscosity with increase in strain rate Decrease in viscosity with increase in strain rate

45 45 Why do we need to model the response? Conduct a creep or a relaxation test. Fit a model to the data. Determine the material parameters. Describe the material parameters based on design conditions Use the model to predict performance under different loads and applications.
