Master Curves of Dynamic Modulus and Phase Angle for High Modulus Asphalt Mixtures
Two types of high modulus asphalt mixtures are introduced. Dynamic modulus and phase angle of these two mixtures are tested with Simple Performance Testing System under different temperatures, loading frequencies and confining pressures. Based on time-temperature superposition principle, dynamic modulus master curves and time-temperature shift factors at reference temperature are obtained using nonlinear square least square regression, and phase angle master curves are constructed utilizing the same time-temperature shift factors. The influence of confining pressure on mechanical properties of high modulus asphalt mixture is discussed.
