Bitumen stabilised materials: a guideline for the design and construction of bitumen emulsion and foamed bitumen stabilised materials

The first TG2 was published in 2002 and covered the design and construction of foamed bitumen treated materials. Since 2002, significant research in bitumen emulsion and foamed bitumen treatment has been done, which needed to be included in the TG2 guideline, hence this update. This guideline supersedes the TG2 published in 2002 and covers the design and construction of Bitumen Stabilised Materials (BSMs) and includes both materials treated with bitumen emulsion (BSM-emulsion) and foamed bitumen (BSM-foam). The inclusion of BSM-emulsion materials into TG2 has been done because the design and construction of BSM-emulsion and BSM-foam are identical in many respects. Where there are differences between the materials, the inappropriate techniques are often applied by incorrectly adopting the technology for the other material. For this reason, this guideline highlights the similarities and differences, which should prevent the inappropriate application of either technology. This guideline covers the uses of BSMs, their classification for design purposes, the mix and structural design and construction aspects.
