In this study, an effect of temperature on both indirect tensile strength (ITS) test and Marshall Stability Test of foam asphalt mixture using Shell #70 A asphalt is firstly investigated. A detailed investigation of the mechanical properties of foam asphalt mixture was then carried out using two different asphalt binders. The experimental work compares the mechanical properties of foam asphalt mixes including water stability test, indirect tensile strength (ITS) test, and freeze-thaw splitting test. The test results indicate that the foam asphalt mixture is temperature dependent and also temperature sensitive material. The foaming properties of asphalt have an important effect on the properties of the foam asphalt mixture for the strength and water stability of the foam asphalt mixture.
