Nonlinear Fatigue Damage Model of Asphalt Mixture Based on Dynamic Modulus and Residual Strength Decay
AbstractIn order to describe the fatigue damage state of asphalt mixture more reasonably, direct tensile tests of the fatigue and the residual strength under stress levels of 1.00 MPa, 0.50 MPa and 0.25 MPa with five parallel tests were carried out. The trabecular specimens of AC-13C asphalt mixture (25 cm × 5 cm × 5 cm) were manufactured with Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene (SBS) modified asphalt, aggregate basalt and limestone mineral filler. The optimum asphalt-aggregate ratio was 5.2%. The dynamic modulus decay and the residual strength decay were termed as the damage variables to evaluate the fatigue damage process of asphalt mixtures, respectively. Based on the test results, the decay patterns of the dynamic modulus and the residual strength during fatigue tests under different stress states were revealed, and the model and the parameters of fatigue damage according to the corresponding decay patterns were obtained. Then, based on the assumption that the residual strength and dynamic modulus depend on the same damage state, the relationship between the two damage definitions was given, and the residual strength-dynamic modulus coupled model was established. The results showed that the residual strength-dynamic modulus coupled model could better describe the fatigue damage evolution law of asphalt mixture, and the parameter of this coupled model could be obtained by less residual strength tests. A modified formula for calculating the damage variables associated with residual strength and dynamic modulus was proposed based on the relationship between two kinds of damage variables.
