REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON FILLERS AND CUSHION COURSES FOR BRICK AND BLOCK PAVEMENTS

PROGRESS IN THE USE OF FILLERS ON THE HOCKING COUNTY ROAD IN OHIO WAS REPORTED. ON THE ORIGINAL TEST ROAD A BLEND OF SEMI-ASPHALTIC BASE AND ASPHALTIC BASE ASPHALTS WAS USED. ON THE ENTIRE PAVEMENT PROJECTS A MID-CONTINENT BASE ASPHALT WAS USED WHICH COMPLIED WITH THE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES SPECIFICATION. USE OF THIS FILLER PRODUCED A PAVEMENT WHICH WAS CLEAN AND FREE FROM EXUDATION. THERE WAS ONE EXCEPTION AND IN THAT CASE THE FILLER WAS APPARENTLY F.1, OHIO SPECIFICATION. IF A JOINT WAS BUILT IN THE CONCRETE BASE, VERY PRONOUNCED EXUDATION OF FILLER WAS APPARENT. IT WAS NOTICED THAT THERE WAS SOME INCOMPLETE FILLING AT THE END JOINTS OF THE BRICK. THIS WAS ATTRIBUTED BY INVESTIGATION TO INSUFFICIENT HEATING OF THE NEW TYPE FILLER. PAVEMENTS CONSTRUCTED WITH THIS NEW TYPE WERE VERY SUCCESSFUL.
