Resonant frequency testing of cylindrical asphalt samples

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There is a need to develop simple and quick non-destructive tests to measure the complex dynamic modulus of asphalt over a wide frequency and temperature range, i.e. mastercurve. In this study results from free-free resonant frequency measurements on cylindrical disk shaped asphalt samples are presented. The resulting mastercurve, obtained by resonant frequency testing at different temperatures, compares well with reference values within the high modulus range. The proposed method is simple and repeatable.
