Publication Details

Microdamage Healing in Asphalt and Asphalt Concrete, Volume IV: A Viscoelastic Continuum Damage Fatigue Model of Asphalt Concrete With Microdamage Healing Research/Reference: useful for researchers doing further work in the pavement area as well as those developing improved testing and design procedures. Includes documents of historical value.

Primary Topic: Materials-Asphalt

Description: A mechanistic approach to fatigue characterization of asphalt-aggregate mixtures is presented. The approach is founded on a uniaxial viscoelastic constitutive model that accounts for damage evolution under cyclic loading conditions. Fourth in a series of four documents. FHWA-RD-98-141 Volume I: Microdamage and Microdamage Healing, Project Summary Report; FHWA-RD-98-142 Volume II: Laboratory and Field Testing to Assess and Evaluate Microdamage and Microdamage Healing; and FHWA-RD-98-143 Volume III: A Micromechanics Fracture and Healing Model for Asphalt Concrete.
