The Hot Mix Asphalt ( H M A ) can be characterized as a combination of three phases: air voids, coarse aggregate, and asphalt matrix ( A M ) , w h i c h includes binder and fine aggregate. This study focuses on the characterization of the moisture damat < I I MA containing Palm Oil Fuel Ash (POFA) as a filler material. Marshall design method was utilized io chimin (he optimum bitumen content of HMA. Different percentages of POFA were added to HMA prior to t h e 1 1 : i nnce test to determine the optimal POFA dosage. The mixtures were prepared using granite aggregates I |vnc:ration grade 8 0 - 1 0 0 binder. Marshall specimens were tested using the universal testing machine to d • •'; • I: i ••. the initial stiffness modulus and the stiffness modulus after the conditioned period (retained stiffness m o d u l u s ) based on the I n d i r e c t Tensile Stiffness Modulus (ITSM) test method. The analysis revealed that the POFA significantly improves the visco-elastic response of the moisture damaged resistance of AM. The stiffness m o d u l u s of the H M A i m p r o v e d ' ^ to improvement of the AM with the additional of POFA. The most effective : c : 'i e of P O F A as ' ! ; -.aerial is ranging from 50 to 75 % respectively. The study founds that the ITS 1 t -w w : h o d combining- -,\ I AASHTO T-283 conditionings is suitable to distinguish the lab-measured mois -e > tibility o f H M A U palm oil fuel ash (POFA) as a filler material. Besides that, it is a good potenti; f POFA as a fillc- ial to the enhancement of the moisture damage resistance of HMA.
