Stripping of Hot-Mix Asphalt Pavements under Chip Seals

The higher costs of hot-mix asphalt pavement are causing more agencies to choose pavement preservation techniques to maintain their pavements. Some agencies have experienced stripping of the asphalt surface under chip seals, this distress appears to occur mostly in urban areas on curb and gutter streets. The main objective of the study was to determine what causes the stripping and to develop test methods to determine if the street will strip prior to placement of the chip seal. Both field and lab methods were used. Research focused on determining air voids, permeability, and density of the samples. Once these were determined, correlations were developed to determine the conclusions.
