INVESTIGATION OF ASPHALTIC PAVING MIXTURES RELATIVE TO DEFORMATION OF SURFACES UNDER TRAFFIC

A REVIEW IS PRESENTED ON THE STABILITY OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES AND METHODS FOR TESTING OF STABILITY. IMPORTANT FACTORS SEEM TO BE THE VOIDS IN THE AGGREGATES USED AND THE INITIAL COMPRESSION GIVEN TO THE PAVING MIXTURE. RAPIDLY DECREASING STABILITY WAS FOUND BY INCREASING BITUMEN CONTENT BEYOND A CERTAIN POINT. THE MOST SUITABLE PERCENTAGE OF BITUMEN FOR A GIVEN AGGREGATE TO OBTAIN MAXIMUM STABILITY IS LARGELY DEPENDENT UPON THE VOIDS IN THE COMPRESSED AGGREGATE AND IS LIKELY ALSO AFFECTED BY SURFACE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE AGGREGATE.
