"THERMAL FATIGUE DAMAGE OF ASPHALT PAVEMENT" by Md

Sep 01, 2015  Fatigue damage can be defined by a decrease in stiffness of Asphalt Concrete (AC) under repeated traffic loading. For each cycle of traffic loading, tensile strain develops at the bottom of AC layer of an asphalt pavement. Some localized damages occur in the material at minute-scale due to this developed tensile strain. These damages cause decrease in stiffness (E) of AC.

What Is Asphalt Fatigue Cracking? » Alpha Paving

Jan 15, 2020  Fatigue cracking, also known as crocodile cracking or alligator cracking, appears as a network of interconnected cells that are reminiscent of the scales on a reptile’s back. Once asphalt pavement begins to develop fatigue cracks, the damage can expand rapidly and endanger the health of large sections of the pavement in a relatively short time.
