Bitumen ageing plays a significant role in determining the resistance of asphalt mixes to fatigue cracking. Regardless of the type of ageing (oxidation during manufacture or during the service life), hardening effects increase the risk of cracking. The objective of this work is to examine the combined effect of the loss of volatiles and oxidation produced during ageing on the fatigue behaviour of the bitumen. To this end, different types of bitumen were subjected to accelerated ageing in the laboratory, simulating long-term ageing (RTFOT + PAV). They were then subjected to traditional tests (penetration, softening point, Fraass fragility point, dynamic viscosity, etc.), Dynamic Shear Rheometer tests (frequency and temperature sweep), and the EBADE test (a fatigue strain sweep test at different temperatures). Different temperatures have been used to evaluate the effect of visco-elastic phenomena on aged binder fatigue. The results showed that, in terms of their response to ageing, modified binders show a higher rate of variation in their general properties than conventional binders. In addition, it was shown that temperature plays an important role in the impact of ageing on the fatigue response of bituminous binders, and in the same way, in the mechanical response of these materials.
