dc.description.abstractThe Road Research Laboratory of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) has developed a new tensile test called Fénix test. The objective of this test is to evaluate bituminous mixture crack behaviour. It is a simple procedure and has a low cost set up. The aim of this paper is to present Fénix test as a procedure to determine crack resistance through calculation of dissipated energy during the process. Test procedure and data analysis are shown for different types of mixtures. Variables studied were load application velocity, aging, binder type, binder content, test temperature and compaction temperature. As a result, authors found out that Fénix test is an effective procedure to determine mechanical properties regarding cracking resistance of bituminous mixtures.
