In this paper the DSR test was conducted to compare the difference of rheological property between different asphalt mastics. The complex modulus ([G.sup.*]) and phase angle ([delta]) at certain temperature (52[degrees]C, 58[degrees]C, 64[degrees]C, and 70[degrees]C) and particular frequency (10 rad/s) were obtained, which could be considered that the shear rheological properties of different asphalt mastics could be compared and analyzed according to references [8,10, 28].
