Measuring Thermal Conductivity of Asphalt

A sample of conventional asphalt was also used as a control during testing Thermal property investigations included measurements of thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and heat capacity Mechanical property studies involved indirect tensile strength, dynamic stability, and low temperature cracking resistance.

What is Thermal Cracking? (with pictures)

Aug 22, 2019· The term thermal cracking is also used in reference to concrete, asphalt, and similar materials In this case, low temperatures make the material prone to cracking Things like asphalt are elastic at temperate and high temperatures, deforming as they are stressed, but when it is cold, the material may crack or fracture.

National Center for Asphalt Technology

Although it’s similar to thermal cracking, studies have shown that block cracking may be more dependent on the age of the asphalt pavement than on the environmental conditions In other words, an older pavement that does not experience environmental conditions that would cause thermal cracking may still experience block cracking.
