This paper illustrates the approach adopted by the Public Works Authority (Ashghal) of the State of Qatar for the advanced chemical and rheological characterization of bituminous binders (both neat and modified). The ultimate objective of testing is to create a database of employed binders, which may be meaningful for the optimization of the selection of materials and for the consequent enhancement of pavement performance. This paper provides an illustration of employed testing procedure and briefly discusses typical experimental results.
