Investigation of Low Temperature Cracking in Asphalt

The ultimate goal is the elimination of low temperature cracking in both new and rehabilitated Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) pavements. Low temperature cracking is the main cause of pavement roughness and reduced service life in Northern climates. The original PG binder specifications developed in the 1990’s during the SHRP program considered only neat

LOW TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE OF ASPHALT

Thermal cracking is one of the major distresses in asphalt pavements and has been a serious concern especially in cold regions. There are two different mechanisms for temperature cracking in the field: Low temperature cracking associated with severe temperature drops and thermal fatigue cracking in reaction to repeated temperature cycles.
