PROPERTIES, STUDY AND USE OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES

PROPIEDADES, ESTUDIO Y EMPLEO DE MEZCLAS BITUMINOSAS

THE AUTHOR DEMONSTRATES THE THEORETICAL COMPLEXITY OF PROBLEMS RELATING TO BITUMINOUS MIXTURES AND CARRIES OUT A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF THE REGULATIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS ISSUED BY MANY RESEARCH CENTRES ON THE PROJECT, MANUFACTURING, CONTROL AND LAYING OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES. THE CHARACTERISTICS REQUIRED FROM BITUMINOUS MIXTURES (STABILITY, DURABILITY, FLEXIBILITY, RESISTANCE TO FATIGUE AND SKIDDING, WATERPROOFING, QUALITY AND ULTIMATE STRENGTH), AND THE TESTS TO BE CARRIED OUT FOR IDENTIFICATION ARE DEFINED AND STUDIED. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE INTERPRETATIONS OF THE MOST COMMON LABORATORY TEST RESULTS ARE GIVEN TOGETHER WITH CHARTS USED FOR DEFINING THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DIFFERENT LAYERS OF A PAVEMENT. THE STRUCTURES (DEFORMATION, CRACKING, DISINTEGRATION OF THE MATERIALS) ARE EXAMINED, AND COMMENTS ARE MADE ON CURRENT PRACTICAL PROBLEMS. FOR THE COVERING ABSTRACT, SEE IRRD ABSTRACT NO 106958.
