Title:Use of the IDEAL-CT Test for Pavement Cracking to Achieve a Balanced Asphalt Mix Design
Principal Investigators:Pedro Romero

Keywords:asphalt mixtures, cracking, mix design, pavement performance, test procedures
 

Abstract

This project will evaluate the ability of a new tests, called the IDEAL-CT, to determine potential cracking performance of asphalt mixtures. The data will be compared to the results previously obtained by using the SCB IFIT tests (AASHTO TP-124) in terms of relation to field performance, repeatability, and simplicity. The goal being the selection of the most cost effective test as it is well known that the easier the test is to run, the more likely it will be implemented by a highway agency as long as it provides reliable data.
