BINDER FOCUS AREA

Abstract As performance grades are developed for South African bituminous binders, the need arises to expand the related engineering knowledge and understanding in the context of local technology and materials. The Dynamic Shear and Bending Beam Rheometers are commonly applied to evaluate fundamental viscoelastic material behaviour by measuring properties such as the shear complex modulus

Abstract Bitumen is one of the most used materials in the world, constituting most road designs and applications. Given the extensive use of bitumen, it is important to understand the material and limit all possible drawbacks for better utilisation. Although bitumen has many desirable properties, one disadvantage that bitumen has is its susceptibility to the
