For many decades, bitumen has been successfully used in asphalt concrete to pave roads. Despite continuous improvements to bitumen production processes, mix design and pavement design, there are limits to the extent that bitumen can surmount the challenge. Accelerating wear and tear caused by heavy traffic and harsh climates are taking a toll. In addition there are increasing demands for quieter and safer roads. In India about 90% of roads are bitumen paved. Pavement industry has developed rapidly all over the world during the last few decades, especially in developing countries. Following the rapid development, increased traffic load, higher traffic volume, and insufficient maintenance led to many severe distresses (e.g. rutting and cracking) of road surfaces. The harsh reality was demanding more on bitumen quality. Considering all these problems it is seen that using plain bitumen is not sufficient now a days due to increase in distress therefore considering the need of modification of bitumen, foaming of bitumen is also a step towards modification of bitumen.
