  The BiTVal project has been developed by it is now recognised that the binder properties alone do not determine pavement performance. Other parameters, such as aggregate characteristics, mixture design, manufacture and laying are also considered as important. The BiTVal project represents a significant effort requiring support and participation from industry and authorities in many countries. It is expected to, first deliver the appropriate answers for assessing the suitability of test methods. Second, establish their relevance and correlation to the asphalt pavement performance and last give the required level of confidence in the future specification system to be used during many years in the whole of Europe. The BiTVaL project has been separated in different phases. This report is the Phase 1, which is a desk study, analysing information gathered from all sources, and additional work needed would be identified during this process.

The similarity algorithm calculates how much two contents in the system are similar to one another. So far, similarity is calculated based on similarity of the project type, area of interest and user type. Generally, if two contents have more parameters in common they are more similar to each another. More information.
