Measuring Adhesion Between Binders and Aggregates Using Particle Probe Scanning Force Microscopy at Low Temperatures

Low temperature cracking is one primary distress of pavement materials in New England area. It is estimated that only half of the major US roads are in good condition, whereas thirteen percent are in poor condition. This project will measure adhesion between plain binders and aggregate minerals, as well as between modified binders and aggregate minerals, at low temperatures. The findings could provide potential guidance for asphalt mixtures suitable for low temperature regions.
