Minimizing Moisture Damage in Asphalt Pavements
Volume 2, Number 2
By Larry Santucci, PE

The presence of moisture combined with repetitive traffic can adversely affect the performance of asphalt pavements. Moisture damage is caused by a loss of adhesion, commonly referred to as "stripping" of the asphalt film from the aggregate surface or a loss of cohesion within the asphalt binder itself, resulting in a reduction in asphalt mix stiffness. Heavy traffic on a moisture-weakened asphalt pavement can result in premature rutting or fatigue cracking. [PDF, 2.4 M]
