主讲内容简介

A prototype full-scale Accelerated Pavement Testing (APT) facility was designed and built by Purdue University and the Indiana Department of Transportation. This study presents the development of a new mid-depth profile monitoring system (MPMS) to investigate the rutting behavior of full-depth asphalt pavements. The scope incorporates an experimental study that uses a full-scale accelerated pavement testing (APT) facility. Two different thicknesses of full-depth asphalt pavements were constructed in the Indiana accelerated pavement-testing facility. A laser profile scanning system was designed to reconstruct the transverse profiles at each pavement layer interface throughout the process of accelerated pavement deterioration. The contribution of each pavement structural layer to the total rut depth and the evolution of layer deformation were determined. The developed system provides reasonable results with a high accuracy level based on the findings. First, the measured rutting curves at each layer interface agree well with the theoretical characteristics of rutting evolution and clearly exhibit the primary and secondary stages of rutting development. Second, the locations of critical rutting and the total rut depths were found to be independent of pavement thickness when the pavement is sufficiently thick, which is a finding that agrees with previous study results. The results demonstrate MPMS developed in this study provides an excellent method to evaluate the rutting performance of asphalt pavements in the APT. In addition, MPMS has a potential application to in-service pavements.

主讲内容简介

There are concerns on if the laboratory aging can fully represent field pavement aging especially when polymer modified asphalt (PMA) and warm mix asphalt (WMA) binders are used. In addition, the laboratory aging was developed based on SHRP binder tests (i.e., performance grade, PG); its applicability to recently developed tests such as MSCR is not clear. Therefore, the objectives of this paper are to investigate quantitatively the level of laboratory aging (both short-term and long-term) as compared to the field aging for both the control HMA binders and WMA/PMA binders, as well as to evaluate if the MSCR results using laboratory aged binders are comparable to the MSCR results based on recovered binders from field cores. Four projects that covered different climatic zones, pavement structures and materials were selected. Binder properties including high temperature PG, MSCR, binder low temperature PG and fracture energy are used for analysis. Based on the analysis, laboratory aging of asphalt binder is parameter sensitive: the laboratory RTFO and RTFO/PAV aging methods are insufficient to simulate field aging conditions for most cases except for low temperature PG test. Regarding MSCR test, no pattern can be found if the laboratory aging is sufficient/insufficient or reasonable to simulate field aging. Additionally, the Sasobit binders with PMA binders are over-aged by laboratory aging, thus the laboratory aging strength for such type of binder may need to be reduced to more accurately describe short-term field aging. Based on one mix type with non-polymer modified binders, 2 days’ oven aging of loose mix at 85°C matched well with the 1st-round recovered binders, indicating that 2-day oven aging of loose mix is reasonable to represent short-term field aging. Moreover, 7-day oven aging of loose mix is sufficient to mimic 3 years’ field aging.
