THE COOPERATIVE HIGHWAY RESEARCH PROJECT, PURDUE UNIVERSITY AND INDIANA HIGHWAY COMMISSION

PROGRESS REPORTS ARE MADE ON A CONDITION SURVEY AND STUDY OF THE COMPOSITION OF BITUMINOUS SURFACES; A STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF ROAD ROLLERS ON AGGREGATES IN PLACE IN COMPARISON WITH THE LOS ANGELES RATTLER TEST; TWO TEST ROADS HAVING 28 DIFFERENT SECTIONS; A STUDY OF FREEZING AND THAWING, AND WETTING AND DRYING TESTS OF SOIL MIXTURES; FROST ACTION IN SOILS; TESTS OF SOILS; AND CHARACTERISTICS OF ROCK ASPHALT. A SIGNIFICANT OBSERVATION FROM THE SURVEY OF BITUMINOUS SURFACE TREATMENT IS THAT THERE WAS NOT ONLY A LARGE AMOUNT OF DEGRADATION OF AGGREGATES DURING CONSTRUCTION, BUT THAT THERE WAS A GRADUAL BREAKING DOWN OF THE AGGREGATE UNDER TRAFFIC. THERE APPEARED TO BE A DEFINITE RELATION BETWEEN THE RESULTS OF THE LOS ANGELES RATTLER TEST AND THE ACTION OF THE ROAD ROLLER ON THE AGGREGATES IN PLACE. /AUTHOR/
