Abstract

A recent study showed the effectiveness of the monotonic torsional loading (MTL) test in evaluating low temperature failure properties of asphalt binders. The study described in this paper, which combines laboratory testing and data modelling, aimed at taking a step forward in the development of such a methodology. The MTL test, which involves using the dynamic shear rheometer (DSR) with 4 mm parallel plates, was employed to assess the performance of a set of selected asphalt binders of different types and origin in a wide range of testing conditions. Experimental results were processed with an improved modelling approach to derive the discrete relaxation spectra of investigated materials. Moreover, the time–temperature superposition principle was used to construct brittleness master curves, from which critical failure temperatures can be determined for any loading time. Outcomes of the investigation showed that the MTL test is extremely effective in evaluating and discriminating the low temperature failure properties of asphalt binders.
