A review of top-down cracking in asphalt pavements:

Oct 01, 2020  This paper reviewed the causes, models and experimental tools for top-down cracking (TDC) in asphalt pavements. A comprehensive literature review was undertaken in order to achieve a better understanding of TDC, based on the evidence that such distress affects up to 20%–30% of the slow traffic lane on Italian motorways.

Jan 01, 2008  After this so-called “top-down cracking” was discovered on this first project, other pavements began manifesting similar traits. Therefore, a statewide evaluation was conducted to determine the extent of this distress in other pavements. As a result of this study 28 sites were evaluated and of these 18 contained top-down cracking.

ASSESSMENT OF TOP-DOWN CRACKING CAUSES IN ASPHALT PAVEMENTS

Cracks observed at the surface may have several origins and causes. A crack may either begin at the bottom or at the top of an asphalt layer. Cracking originated at the top of asphalt layers (top-down cracking) observed in temperate-climate countries is a degradation mechanism which has not been fully researched. In order to access this "new" degradation in Portugal, a sampling plan has been ...
