Fatigue Behavior of Chemically Treated Bituminous Concrete Mix

Anil Kumar S, Vijaya Kumar H A


Design, construction and maintenance of roads are given prime importance in the development of the infrastructure of a country. High traffic intensity in terms of overloaded commercial vehicles, significant variations in daily and seasonal temperature and extreme environmental conditions are responsible for early development of distress symptoms like rutting, cracking, bleeding, and shoving and moisture damage of bituminous surfacing.
