EFFECTS OF FILLER COMPOSITION ON BINDER VISCOSITY AND MIX STABILITY

COMBINATIONS OF TWO PENETRATION GRADE ASPHALT CEMENTS AND THREE MINERAL FILLERS WERE PREPARED AT VARIOUS FILLER CONCENTRATIONS. MIXTURE CONSISTENCY WAS DETERMINED BY PENETRATION. SOFTENING POINT, AND VISCOSITY TESTS. THE LOW- TEMPERATURE PROPERTIES WERE PREDICTED FROM EACH SYSTEM AND COMPARED. MARSHALL STABILITY SPECIMENS WERE PREPARED USING PREMIXED BINDER AND CONVENTIONAL METHODS. HIGHER STABILITIES AND LOW TEMPERATURE STIFFNESS WERE NOTED FOR MIXTURES WITH PORTLAND CEMENT FILLER. PREMIXED BINDER SPECIENS WERE FOUND TO HAVE HIGHER STABILITY AND MORE UNIFORMITY THAN CONVENTIONAL SPECIMENS. /AUTHOR/
