Asphalt Paving Technology 2012

This publication comprises papers presented at the annual meeting of the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists that focus on all phases of asphalt research and applications, including mixing, mixture elements, and testing.Two highlights of this series volume are solutions to production and scale-up problems in asphalt plants, and an entire section is devoted to asphalt research and applications in Latin America. Technical sessions include the following topics: sustainable photocatalytic asphalt pavements; renewable fuel co-products; rutting characteristics of warm mix asphalt (WMA) and high reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) mixtures; laboratory and coating compaction procedures for cold mix asphalt; internal structure characterization of asphalt mixtures; viscoelastic properties of asphalt mixtures; interface condition characteristics and open-graded friction course; fracture energy; fatigue damage modeling; cracking resistance; asphalt mixtures with dry added ground tire rubber; loose mix aging and warm mix asphalt; grave bitumen 5 (GB5) mix design; high polymer plant-produced mixtures; bond energy; physico-chemical interaction; aging procedures; and delayed mechanical response in modified asphalt binders. Papers from the Symposium include the following topics: recent advances in production facilities; production and construction of hot mix asphalt (HMA) and WMA; layer thickness and achieving density; best practices for HMA longitudinal joints; and milling and paving operations. Papers from the International Forum include the following topics: asphalt specifications in Latin America; asphalt technology in Chile; asphalt specifications in Colombia; and asphalt research and specifications in Central America-Costa Rica.
