CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE EVALUATION OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES AND SOME OF THEIR INGREDIENTS

FOR EVALUATING BITUMINOUS MIXTURES AND THEIR INGREDIENTS IT IS RECOMMENDED TO STUDY: (1) THE GRANULOMETRIC CURVE OF STONE DUST TO INCLUDE THE FINEST GRAINS; (2) THE INFLUENCE OF DIFFERENT STONE DUST ON THE RESISTANCE OF BITUMINOUS MIXES DURING THE LONG TERM DEPOSITION OF WATER; (3) THE COHESION OF ASPHALT AND THE COHESION OF THE BITUMINOUS MIXTURES. THESE VALUES ARE VERY IMPORTANT FOR THE COMPARISON WITH ALREADY PROVEN MATERIALS, PARTICULARLY WHEN IT IS NECESSARY TO EXAMINE NEW MATERIALS. THE ARTICLES DESCRIBES TEST METHODS FOR THE EVALUATION OF THE PROPERTIES MENTIONED. IT IS STRESSED THAT FOR BOTH BITUMENS AND BITUMINOUS MIXTURES, ADHERENCE TO THESE METHODS PERMITS ELIMINATION OF THE INFLUENCE OF THE BINDER VISCOSITY FROM THE MEASUREMENT, AS OTHERWISE THE RESULTS OBTAINED MAY BE DISTORTED.
