STUDIES OF NATURALLY OCCURING SANDS AND GRAVELLY SANDS WITH REGARD TO THEIR USE FOR MANUFACTURING HOT-MIXED BITUMINOUS ROADBASES. PART 1

FOUR REPRESENTATIVE CURVES WERE DETERMINED FROM THE PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTION CURVES OF 154 SANDS AND GRAVELLY SANDS. IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE FOUR CURVES, MIXTURES WERE MADE OF THE INDIVIDUAL FRACTIONS AND BITUMEN B200 AND B8A . TEST SAMPLES WERE PRODUCED AND EXAMINED FOR VOIDS CONTENT, STABILITY AND SPLITTING TENSILE STRENGTH. VARYING THE FILLER CONTENT PRODUCED CURVES BY MEANS OF WHICH OPTIMUM FILLER CONTENTS FOR HOT-MIXED BITUMINOUS ROADBASE MATERIALS COULD BE DETERMINED. /TRRL/
