Asphalt concrete pavement is susceptible to moisture damage and the damage caused by repeated freeze-thaw cycles is a major problem. This paper summarizes a laboratory investigation for accelerated testing of asphalt concrete to evaluate the long-term performance due to the effect of moisture damage. Laboratory prepared asphalt concrete specimens with and without antistripping treatments were subjected to repeated freeze-thaw cycles of moisture damage prior to testing. The resulting wet-dry indirect tensile strength ratio was the basis for evaluation.
