Abstract Since asphalt binder modifiers for the performance improvement have both good and bad effects on the performance of asphalt pavements, it is important to consider all performance parameters of asphalt pavements for the development of modifiers. This paper evaluates the viscoelastic and plastic properties of four types of asphalt mixtures (three modified mixtures and one unmodified mixture) by laboratory tests, and then, the test results are employed to investigate the effects of modifiers. Test methods adopted in this study are the dynamic modulus test for linear viscoelastic model classified as nondefective test and tension test for constant crosshead rate test and cyclic load test and the triaxial compression test for plastic deformation classified as defective test. The performance for the fatigue failure at the real site’s pavement was evaluated by using the VECD-FEP++. The performance of rutting for each mixture was evaluated by using the viscoplastic model from tension test and triaxial compression test proposed by NCHRP 1-37 A MEPDG (AASHTO2004) and the rutting model. The findings from this study support general understanding of the effects of asphalt binder modifier on the fatigue cracking and rutting performance. When considering the performances of rutting and fatigue failure, K2 mixture is the best SBS-modified material. The modified agent for K1 mixture has low performance than K2 mixture, and K4 mixture is good when the rutting is terribly occurred. But it needs serious caution to the failure.
