The research on the conductive asphalt concrete(CAC) is to melt snow and ice on the pavement and improve the property of skid resistance. However, research at present mainly focuses on the electrical property not on the fatigue behavior which is also important to the application of CAC in the future. The specific rheological model is developed and the relation between creep and fatigue is investigated in this paper. By the single axial static creep test, the existed rheological model (Burgers model) and method of regression, the creep deformation of asphalt concrete is measured with time and parameters of the model are obtained. The results indicate that strain increases quickly with increasing time at initial loading phase, and then the change of strain tend to a stable value in a constant load. At unloading phase, strain decreases immediately and then keep another stable value which was greater than zero. The addition of conductive fillers improves the elastic properties and has no significant influence to the viscosity of asphalt concrete. In addition, the fatigue life can be predicted by the parameters of the Burgers model. The addition of conductive fillers improves energy dissipated, which leads to shorter fatigue life of conductive asphalt concrete compared to the control at levels of longer fatigue life.
