The type of damage to the pavement layer is cracking and permanent deformation. The mechanism of cracking in the pavement layer occurs because of the tensile force at the bottom of the pavement layer due to the wheel load of the vehicle. One parameter of a mixture to achieve strength and durability as needed is the relationship of stress and strain which shows the stiffness of a mixture. Indirect Tensile Strength is a method used to show the stiffness of a mixture. As infrastructure development in Indonesia continues to increase, the availability of natural aggregate materials is decreases. One of the uses of geopolymer can be used as artificial aggregates to replace the depleted natural aggregates. The purpose of this study was to review the stiffness modulus of concrete asphalt mixture with the use of artificial aggregates made from geopolymer by using open gradations of BBA (Beton Bitumineux pour chausees Aeronautiques). From the test results using the Dynapave UTM30 tool at 20 degrees Celcius and 60 degrees Celcius, the mixture of stiffness modulus values is 3223 MPa and 129 MPa.
