Abstract

As part of RILEM TC 237-SIB, TG3 performed a Round Robin Test to evaluate the capacity to measure Poisson’s ratio of an asphalt mixture in the laboratory and to check whether it could be considered as an isotropic property. Five laboratories located in five different countries took part in the testing program. This paper presents the different techniques used by the laboratories, reports the measured Poisson’s ratios and comments upon the differences found between the results. Sinusoidal or haversine loading either in tension–compression or pure compression was applied to the specimens over a range of frequencies and temperatures. During the loading both the axial and radial strains were monitored to allow the complex Young’s modulus and the complex Poisson’s ratios to be calculated. It was found that the complex Young’s modulus and the complex Poisson’s ratios were very close in the Black Diagrams, but diverge sharply in the Cole–Cole plots. It was observed that the maximum difference between the complex Poisson’s ratio in direction 2 and direction 3 is less than 0.05. It would appear that this difference is more related to measurement deviation than anisotropy of the material. Some differences were observed in the master curves of complex Young’s modulus and complex Poisson’s ratio obtained from the five laboratories; however these differences could in most cases be explained by temperature differences. It was concluded that within the linear viscoelastic range (small strains) the results from the different laboratories show similar rheological behavior and the material response follows the same trend.
