Hot Mix Asphalt Research Investigation for Connecticut: Part E - Field Performance of Superpave and Traditional Marshall Mixtures Mixtures

This research is part of the series of investigated topics surrounding hot mix asphalt in Connecticut. This research investigates the performance of sections of pavements designed using both the Marshall and Superpave mix design methods. Sixteen different pavement sections in Connecticut (eight Superpave and eight Marshall) were analyzed by means of site visits, photolog image analysis and numerical condition ratings. This research was intended to investigate whether there are difference(s) between the two differently designed types of pavement as far as their ability to withstand environmental distress, as well as traffic loading. Results showed no conclusive evidence that the two pavement types perform differently.
