Abstract

In order to seek an appropriate mechanical model to describe the complex modulus and characterise the linear viscoelastic property of asphalt concrete, the Huet-Sayegh model was studied in this research. Laboratory tests of complex modulus were conducted on 20 different mixtures. Several mechanical models (Maxwell, Kelvin, generalised Maxwell, generalised Kelvin and Huet-Sayegh) and the mathematical model of sigmoidal function were applied to establish master curves of dynamic moduli. Results indicate that the Huet-Sayegh model can describe complex modulus more accurately using fewer numbers of parameters compared with other mechanical models.
