Development of an Asphalt Pavement Test Facility at the OSU Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Facility

This report documents the construction and evaluation of the asphalt pavement testing runway at the Oklahoma State University (OSU) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) facility. Runway surface characterization and performance evaluation results, in terms of pavement roughness, longitudinal profiling, surface texture, and friction, are presented in Part 1 based on the two rounds of data collection performed in 2014 and 2015 using several art-of-the-state instruments. Part 2 presents the results from the construction and evaluation of an experimental shoulder mix placed on the east side of the UAV runway. The dynamic modulus testing and semicircular bend (SCB) test were performed to evaluate the four mixtures used in the facility.
