Accounting for the large variation of asphalt mixes, resulting from variations of constituents and composition, and from the allowance of additives, a multiscale model for asphalt is currently developed at the Christian Doppler Laboratory for "Performance-based optimization of flexible road pavements". The multiscale concept allows to relate macroscopic material properties of asphalt to phenomena and material properties of finer scales of observation. Starting with the characterization of the finest scale, i.e., the bitumen-scale, Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is employed. Depending on the mode of measurement (tapping versus pulsed-force mode), the AFM provides insight into the surface topography or stiffness and adhesion properties of bitumen. The obtained results will serve as input for upscaling in the context of the multiscale model in order to obtain the homogenized material behavior of bitumen at the next-higher scale, i.e., the mastic-scale.
