LABORATORY RESEARCH ON MATERIALS USED FOR BITUMINOUS MAT SURFACES

SINCE 1930, LARGE MILEAGES OF SAND-GRAVEL OR CHAT ROADS ON THE KANSAS STATE HIGHWAY SYSTEM HAVE BEEN TREATED WITH OIL TO FORM A BITUMINOUS MAT FROM 1 TO 15. IN. IN THICKNESS. DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED IN CONSTRUCTION SHOWED THE NECESSITY FOR RESEARCH ON BOTH BITUMINOUS MATERIALS AND AGGREGATES. RESEARCH WAS UNDERTAKEN TO DETERMINE THE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF MIXTURES OF AGGREGATES AND ROAD OIL AND THE EFFECT UPON THOSE CHARACTERISTICS OF VARIATIONS IN THE SOURCE OF SUPPLY OF THE BITUMINOUS MATERIALS, THE EFFECT OF CHANGES IN GRADATION OF THE AGGREGATES, THE RELATIVE VALUES OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF FINES, AND THE RESULTS OBTAINED BY VARIATIONS IN THE AMOUNT OF ROAD OIL USED IN THE MIXTURE. /AUTHOR/
