Indian Institute of Technology Madras (R, C)

 

Scope and Objectives

To characterize straight run bitumen with nonlinear viscoelastic model

 
Methodology
Laboratory Experiments: Creep Recovery, Stress Relaxation and Oscillatory loading on Straight Run Bitumen in a Dynamic Shear Rheometer will be carried out and the straight run asphalt will be characterized using non-linear visco-elastic models.
