TEMPERATURE CONDITIONS IN BITUMINOUS SURFACINGS AT A SITE NEAR PERTH DURING A PERIOD OF ONE YEAR

TEMPERATURES AT DIFFERENT DEPTH IN ONE- AND TWO-INCH DEEP BITUMINOUS CONCRETE SURFACINGS AND IN THE BITUMEN OF A SURFACE SEAL HAVE BEEN RECORDED OVER A PERIOD OF ONE YEAR AT A TEST SITE NEAR PERTH, AUSTRALIA. THE RECORDED DATA WERE ANALYZED FOR ANNUAL VARIATION IN TEMPERATURE, INCLUDING MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM SURFACE TEMPERATURES; SEASONAL TEMPERATURE VARIATIONS; AND DAILY TEMPERATURE VARIATIONS. THE TEMPERATURES AT PERTH ARE GENERALLY OF THE SAME LEVEL AS THOSE FOUND AT SYDNEY AND SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THOSE AT MELBOURNE. WITH RESPECT TO ANNUAL VARIATIONS, THE THICKER LAYER GAVE A HIGHER MAXIMUM SURFACE TEMPERATURE. DATA FOR SEASONAL AND DAILY VARIATIONS ARE GIVEN ONLY FOR THE 2-INCH LAYER AND THE SURFACE SEAL.
