Saleh H. Swailmi has written: 'Development of a test procedure for water sensitivity of asphalt concrete mixtures' -- subject(s): Asphalt concrete, Asphalt concrete Pavements, Pavements, Asphalt. This test is appropriate only for asphalt concrete, hot-rolled asphalt, and stone mastic asphalt mixtures. Test conditions: (i) 6 specimens with a diameter of ± mm and a height of ± mm (ii) 4 temperatures 0°C, +10°C, +15°C, +20°C, and +30°C (iii) Device—universal servohydraulic testing Author: Jan Mikolaj, Frantisek Schlosser, Lubos Remek, Martin Pitoňák, Juraj Šrámek. The third objective was to evaluate open-graded\ud mixtures and rubber modified mixtures for water sensitivity using the ECS.\ud The ECS test results indicate that performance ranking of mixtures by asphalt\ud type or aggregate type alone cannot be made for the ECS test results due to the\ud significant interaction between asphalt and aggregate.

Conditioning procedures for the indirect tensile testing were soaking only and soaking plus freezing. Test results indicated that the mineralogy of aggregate is a dominant factor in determining the susceptibility of asphalt concrete mixtures for water damage. Other factors such as conditioning procedure and source of asphalt are of less importance. Later, a continuum model and a concomitant test methodology are used to measure healing characteristics in asphalt mixtures that are independent of the testing conditions, sensitive to the duration of the rest period during which healing occurs, and sensitive to the .

However, due to their complexity and a global shortage of these materials, their design and technical development present several challenges.

The assessment procedure is based on the indirect tensile strength test after the conditioning method, from which the concept of the Damage Rate as an indicator for classifying the durability of mixtures against moisture damage, was by: 3.
