stability with crackresistance in asphalt pavement

1. Introduction

Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) is one of the most popular types of asphalt pavement design used in different countries around the world. Although, there are several methods for designing HMA, such as Marshall method, Haveem method, and asphalt institute method; the design of these mixes is still rely on the Marshall procedure in several countries [1] .


Feb 22,  · The pavement cracks form when asphalt in the pavement hardens from aging to the point that it cannot relieve the stress as the pavement tries to bend from the differences in temperature from the top of the pavement to the bottom of the pavement. the crack resistant coating allows for both crack resistance and stability (i.e. resist rutting
