Abstract: This paper summarizes some key achievements and findings by the RILEM TC 206 ATB “advanced testing and characterization of bituminous materials”, focusing on interlaboratory tests on compacted asphalt pavement materials. Results from wheel tracking tests on materials from real motorways well as interlayer shear bond testing on materials taken from specially constructed test sections are presented. New developments in asphalt mixture testing, such as the application of image analysis techniques, are also taken into consideration, in particular with respect to compaction effects. Results show that performance related testing of bituminous mixtures must be considered also with respect to the whole pavement system and depends on variation in compaction. It was also found that test methods developed for one type of bituminous materials do not a priory apply to another type of bituminous materials and may even lead to completely misleading conclusions as compared to real life pavement performance.
