USE OF THE HVEEM STABILOMETER TEST IN DESIGN PROCEDURE FOR EMULSIFIED-ASPHALT MIX

The selection, proportioning, testing, and criteria recommended for the various uses of emulsified-asphalt mixes are discussed. Mix design incorporates the use of Hveem equipment to measure mix stability and cohesion. New testing techniques include the use of vacuum curing and vacuum saturation. The reasons for each test are reviewed. The mix-design procedure appears suitable for predicting the performance of emulsified-asphalt mixes. The intended use of the mix dictates the procedure and criteria to be used. (Author)
