The work presented in this paper was carried out to statistically evaluate and quantify the material-source effect on the asphalt-binder's rheological properties using Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Tukey's Honestly Significant Difference (Tukey´s HSD) test. The study focused on the Asphalt-Binders' high-temperature rheological properties, namely, the G*, δ, G*/Sin(δ) and G*/(1 - (1/Tan(δ)Sin(δ))) parameters, measured using the Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR) device. The DSR data analyzed in the study were extracted from the Texas flexible pavements and overlays database, namely, the Texas Data Storage System (DSS), covering two Asphalt-Binders (ABs), performance grade (PG) 64-22 and PG 76-22 plant-mix extracted ABs that were treated as rolling thin film oven (RTFO) residue, and sourced from 14 different suppliers.
