Paper Title:
Preliminary Development of Indirect Tensile Tester Cooperated with Industrial Computered Tomography for Asphalt Mixture
  Abstract

In this paper, a new Indirect tensile tester (IDT) which can be cooperated with Industrial Computered Tomography (IDT) is developed. The new tester uses a set of sliders to transfer the vertical stress to hoop stress which applied to a hollow cylindrical sample. The micro-crack will be appeared and propagated in the weakest direction of hollow cylindrical sample with the increase of vertical stress and tensile strength can calculated with the maximum vertical stress. Due to the existence of central slider, the stress state of hollow cylindrical sample will be kept even after unloading and the mixture sample would not have recovery when it is moved for scanning with ICT. The test results show that the combination of the developed ICT with IDT will help obtain more useful information on understanding the nature of asphalt concrete with different tensile damage stages.
