Introduction</p><p>Environmental factors such as temperature, air, and water canhave a profound effect on the durability of asphalt mixtures. Inmild climatic conditions where good-quality aggregates andasphalt cement are available, the major contribution to the deteri-oration may be trafc loading, and the resultant distress manifestsas fatigue cracking, rutting (permanent deformation), and raveling.However, when a severe climate is in question, these stressesincrease with poor materials, under inadequate control, with trafcas well as with water which are key elements in the degradation of</p><p>can include stripping as the underlying cause are rutting, cracking,raveling, ushing, and bleeding. Stripping can progress from eitherthe top or bottom of hot mix pavement layer. The common cause inall cases of stripping is the presence of water. The potential for ahot mix asphalt pavement to incur moisture damage can be con-trolled or reduced through material selection, mixture designs thatinclude a high asphalt lm thickness, additives, proper pavementdesign, construction, compaction, and drainage [2,3].</p><p>Permanent deformation and moisture damage (i.e., rutting andstripping) are two predominant hot-mix asphalt (HMA) distresses.Rutting can be caused by many factors, including stripping, whichKeywords:Asphalt mixturesSBS polymerAnti-stripping agentFatty amineRepeated creepResilient modulusIndirect tension testMoisture damage0950-0618/$ - see front matter 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

SBS and amine agentswere compared with indirect effects in context with deformation and moisture resistance. Three typesof moisture conditioning were selected. Regimes were based on water immersion, freezethaw cyclesand superposition of these. Repeated creep tests (RCTs) and indirect tensile (ITT) tests were applied. Inview of RCT polymer showed higher resistance to rutting based on permanent deformations than the con-trol and amine modied mixtures. Lower deformations were calculated with SBS than the others accord-ing to the RCT. For high temperature and combined moisture effects based on water saturation andfreezethaw cycle rutting and moisture problem have been being a serious problem for both controland SBS-anti stripping agent modied mixtures. In this context great importance must be given in designand quality control. Proportional moisture damage evaluation was found as a coniction. With theincreasing of rise period lower resilient modulus (RM) were obtained with all control and modied mix-tures in ITT. Selected moisture conditioning methods reveal observable level of damage with the RM test(ASTM D4123) with the selected parameters. Both amine and SBS modied mixtures gives higher RMhence load spreading capacity increases with both SBS and anti-strips.</p><p> 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

It was stated that a signif-icant improvement in the properties of base bitumen was observed when the SBScontent was increased from 2% to 6% by weight [7].

The dosage of AS depends on the type of bitumen andaggregate used. Normally between 0.2% and 0.5% is added to the binder [8].

This phe-nomenon has been recognized since 1938. A number of tests areused to evaluate moisture susceptibility of bituminous mixtures.In addition to AASHTO T283, these tests include the following:NCHRP Report 192 (Lottman), Modied Lottman, NCHRP Report274 (Tunnicliff and Root), ASTM D 1075-81 (AASHTO T 165-82),ASTM D 1664-80 (AASHTO T 182-82), and MIL-STD-620ImmersionCompression Test. Someof these tests are based on sub-jective evaluation of results. In general, the tests have a tenuous cor-relation with actual eld performance [6].</p><p>To alleviate or to control the deformations due to water damage,various researches were performed leading to the utilization ofanti-stripping additives. Anti-stripping additives are used toincrease physico-chemical bond between the bitumen and aggre-gate and to improve wetting by lowering the surface tension ofthe bitumen. The additives that are used in practice or tested inthe laboratory include: (i) traditional liquid additives, (ii) metalion surfactants, (iii) hydrated lime and quick lime, (iv) silane cou-pling agents, and (v) silicone. Among them, hydrated lime andquicklime are the most commonly used solid type anti-strippingagents [1].</p><p>The main goal of this research is to investigate rutting andmoisture damage problems in asphalt mixtures. Anti-strippingfatty amine additive (AS) and styrenebutadienestyrene polymer(SBS) was used. Repeated creep tests and indirect tension testswere realized for different moisture conditioning.
