    Abstract: Previous research indicated that nanomaterials have potential in improving pavement properties, particularly moisture resistance. This study evaluated the effectiveness of nanoclays in enhancing the resistance of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) to moisture damage and compared its performance to standard modifiers. Asphalt binder modified using four additives... Show More
