GRANULAR STRUCTURE OF CONVENTIONAL BITUMINOUS MIXTURES

SOBRE LA ESTRUCTURA GRANULAR DE LAS MEZCLAS ASFALTICAS

DIFFERENT RESEARCH WORKERS HAVE ATTEMPTED TO USE A GRAPHIC DOUBLE LOGARITHMIC SCALE REPRESENTATION OF THE PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTION OF CONVENTIONAL BITUMINOUS MIXTURES. THIS FACILITATES THE RATIONAL INTERPRETATION OF AND DIFFERENTIATION BETWEEN THE TYPES OF GRANULAR STRUCTURE CORRESPONDING TO EACH KIND OF COMMONLY USED MIXTURES. THE MARSHALL VOLUMETRIC AND MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS WERE DETERMINED EXPERIMENTALLY TOGETHER WITH THE TRIAXIAL BEHAVIOUR OF SIX MIXTURES PREPARED WITH THE SAME STONE AGGREGATE OF DIFFERENT PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTIONS, CORRESPONDING TO FOUR TYPES OF GRANULAR STRUCTURE. IN EACH CASE THE MIXTURE CONTAINED AN OPTIMUM CONTENT OF THE SAME ASPHALT. THE RELATIONS BETWEEN THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MIXTURES AND THEIR TYPE OF GRANULAR STRUCTURE WERE STUDIED.
