Improved Overlay Tester for Fatigue Cracking

This project will focus on evaluating the previous work attempting to modify the current Overlay Tester (OT) to measure and characterize the fatigue properties of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) laid down by the Districts. This project will select a modified test method and create corresponding specifications for OT that rank the fatigue cracking potential of HMA mixes and provide their fatigue properties in a timely manner and with few technical complications.
