Evaluation of the Cracking Performance of Asphalt Binders at Intermediate Temperatures

The primary objective of this research is to identify a parameter that integrates binder failure limit and damage rate to effectively characterize binder cracking performance at intermediate temperatures. Detailed objectives are: (1) Identify an approach to determine a suitable rate of damage parameter for asphalt binders; (2) Propose a parameter that integrates binder FED and damage rate; and (3) Evaluate and calibrate the proposed binder parameter with mixture fracture properties and laboratory performance.
