Paper Title:
Fracture Mechanics and Fatigue Cracks Reduction of Polymeric Asphalt Pavements
  Abstract

The objective of this research was to advance understanding of the cracking process via laboratory and computational studies and to convey the obtained results in a form that can be utilized for the prediction of cracking in flexible pavements. The primary purpose of this project reported herein was to evaluate the effects of tire cords on the fatigue response of asphalt mix and to develop recommendations for improving the fatigue performance of asphalt pavements. Based on the results presented in this paper, the indirect tensile strength tests can propose as a simple performance test for fatigue cracking of asphalt mixture. The results clearly demonstrate a great potential procedure for the fatigue cracking evaluation of asphalt mixture.
