ANALYSIS OF FLEXIBLE PAVING MIXTURES BY THEORETICAL DESIGN PROCEDURE BASED ON SHEAR STRENGTH /WITH DISCUSSION/

INSTRUMENTATION FOR THE PREPARATION AND TESTING OF FLEXIBLE PAVING MIXTURES ON FLEXURE, TENSION, AND TRIAXIAL COMPRESSION IS DESCRIBED. THE INFLUENCE OF TEST TEMPERATURE AND RATE OF LOADING ON ASPHALT CONCRETE IS DEVELOPED. MIXTURE VARIABLES IN THE INVESTIGATION INCLUDED AGGREGATE GRADATION, ASPHALT CONTENT, PENETRATION AND VISCOSITY OF ASPHALT, BINDER BLEND USING FLAKE ASPHALT AND POLYETHYLENE, VIADON BINDER CONTENT, AND ASBESTOS FIBERS IN MIXTURE. MIXTURES ARE ANALYZED FOR SUITABILITY TO RESIST COMPRESSIVE STRESSES IN THE PAVEMENT SURFACE COURSE. THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THIS PROCEDURE TO DESIGN IS SHOWN. /AUTHOR/
