Several bituminous concrete interstate pavements that experienced failures suspected to have been caused by stripping were investigated. On two projects, the degree of deterioration, potential serviceability, and possible remedial measures were studied. Cores were taken to determine the degree of stripping and tensile strength, and dynaflect tests were performed. An emulsion mix design was developed for stripped bituminous concrete removed from another project with the expectation that it could be used as a surface mix on a highway with a low traffic volume. While this expectation was not realized, it was concluded that the material is suitable for use in a base mix. A maintenance resurfacing on a fourth project that experienced stripping failure is being monitored and the performance is being evaluated. (FHWA)
