An Application to the European Practice of the Bailey Method for HMA Aggregate Grading Design

The Bailey Method provides a set of tools for the design and the evaluation of aggregate packing and voids of asphalt concrete grading while maintaining appropriate mixture workability and durability. In this study, concepts, procedures and parameters of the Bailey Method, that is strongly based on sieves and aggregate sizes adopted in the United States of America (USA), were applied in the European perspective. To this aim, two sets of asphalt mixtures were designed applying the Bailey Method. The study shows that the European practice for aggregate grading design allows the application of the Bailey Method criteria confirming the validity of its basic principles.
