Transverse cracking is most noticeable on concrete pavement that gets a high level of daily traffic. Cool temperatures cause the thermal cracking in asphalt pavement and the constant weight and pressure from overuse and moving vehicles worsens it.
Thermal cracks can be initiated by a single low temperature event or by multiple warming and cooling cycles and then propagated by further low temperatures or traffic loadings. The current Superpave specification attempts to address this issue by specifying a limiting low temperature for asphalt binders.
Thermal cracking of petroleum is also often discussed in chemistry classes while introducing students to basic chemical concepts which come up in the refinery industry. The term thermal cracking is also used in reference to
Thermal cracking is primarily a result of the low temperature environment. After the thermal crack develops, water can enter the crack and cause ravelling of the joint and/or loss of base support. This significantly decreases the rideability of the pavement. In some parts of Colorado, thermal cracking is the primary distress.

Splitting vs. Cracking The difference between splitting and cracking is that a split goes entirely through a shingle and a crack is limited to the surface of the asphalt layer.

Thermal Cracking Analysis Existing Models • Aging of asphalt binder over time is not considered “viscoelastic, fracture, and volumetric properties of asphalt material constant over time.” • Thermal coefficient of contraction (CTC) is considered constant with temperature and usually estimated.
The low-temperature cracking of asphalt concrete pavements is a major pavement distress mechanism in cold regions costing hundreds of millions of dollars in rehabilitation costs to various agencies. Thermal cracking of asphalt pavement is an environment-related distress, since it does not depend on the load applied to the pavement.
Low-temperature cracking of hot-mix asphalt (HMA) pavements continues to be a leading cause of premature pavement deterioration in regions of cold climate and/or where significant thermal cycling occurs.
