A RESUME OF THE USE OF SHELLS AS AGGREGATE IN VIRGINIA /BITUMINOUS MIXES/

A SUMMARY IS PRESENTED OF RESULTS OBTAINED IN LABORATORY STUDIES ON BITUMINOUS MIXES CONTAINING SHELL AGGREGATE. SLIPPERINESS MEASUREMENTS WERE MADE ON A SAND-SHELL SURFACE MIX. THE SKID RESISTANCE OF THE SAND-SHELL SURFACE IS BORDERLINE AND ADDITIONAL POLISHING WILL RESULT IN SLIPPERY CONDITIONS. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT SHELL IN BITUMINOUS MIXES OFFERS CONSIDERABLE PROMISE FOR HIGH QUALITY BITUMINOUS PAVING IN AREAS WHERE COARSE AGGREGATE IS NOT READILY AVAILABLE.
