Asphalt mortar is a mixture of bitumen, filler, and sand. Mortar plays an important role in asphalt mixtures as it serves as the adhesive between the coarser aggregates. Due to the effect of bitumen ageing, the chemical and mechanical properties of asphalt mortar evolve with time. The mortar becomes more brittle and prone to cracking, thus...

The ageing of bitumen has a significant impact on the mechanical behavior of asphalt concrete. In this study, Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR) tests were utilized to investigate the effect of ageing on the relaxation properties of bituminous materials. PEN 70/100 bitumen films with thickness of 2 mm were exposed to laboratory ageing at various...

Ageing of bitumen is a complex process. It is accompanied by major chemical and mechanical changes. In this study, Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer and Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR) tests were utilized to investigate the effect of ageing on the chemical and mechanical properties of bituminous materials. Bitumen films with thickness...
