Experimental Study on Dynamic Modulus Master Curve of ATPB Mixture
With the development of long life pavement concept, asphalt treated permeable base (ATPB) has become the typical structure of asphalt pavement in more rain and wet area. In order to effectively analysis and prediction of pavement performance, and targeted design, pavement materials parameters research seems more and more important. This paper uses MTS system to do the dynamic modulus test for ATPB-25 and ATPB-30. During the test, different measuring temperature and load frequency are set according to the working environment of ATPB type asphalt mixture. With the dynamic modulus test results, full time domain dynamic modulus master curve and corresponding master curve equation of ATPB type asphalt mixture are created. These experimental studies can provide high quality parameters for the optimization design and performance analysis of asphalt pavement structure with ATPB and are important to extend the service life of the asphalt pavement.
