The flexural fatigue test is used to characterize the fatigue life of HMA at intermediate pavement operating temperatures. This characterization is useful because it provides estimates of HMA pavement layer fatigue life under repeated traffic loading. In a well designed pavement, strains in the pavement are low enough so that fatigue is not a problem. However, when pavements are under-designed strains are sufficiently high to cause fatigue failures under repeated loads. These failures ultimately result in fatigue cracking which will cause disintegration of the pavement if not maintained in time.
