The performance of multilayered pavement systems depends strongly on interlayer bonding.

Abstract

The performance of multilayered pavement systems depends strongly on interlayer bonding. To guarantee good bonding, tack coats (also called bond coats) are usually applied at various interfaces during pavement construction or overlay. The effectiveness of the tack coat can be assessed with the use of several devices arranged by different laboratories to evaluate interlayer shear resistance. This paper shows how interlayer shear resistance may be evaluated through the Ancona shear testing research and analysis (ASTRA) device. ASTRA results, expressed in units of maximum interlayer shear stress (τpeak) highlight the effects of various influence parameters such as type of interface treatment, curing time, procedure of specimen preparation, temperature, and applied normal load. Moreover, this paper compares the τpeak results obtained by two different shear test devices: the ASTRA tester designed and developed in the Polytechnic University of Marche (Italy) and the layer-parallel direct shear tester created by the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research. The two test methods provide different but comparable results showing the same ranking of shear resistance for different interface treatments
