This lecture presents an overview of some of the results obtained by the author's team on the mechanical behaviour of unbound granular materials (UGM) and bituminous mixtures (BM). Experimental advanced devices and obtained results, rheological modelling and calculation of practical cases are proposed. Linear and non-linear domains of behaviour are considered including viscous and therrmal effects. A unified framework allowing describing complex behaviour of geomaterials is proposed.
