SAND-BITUMEN MIXTURES - MODERN MIX-DESIGN FORMULA AND APPLICATION TO PAVEMENT DESIGN

LES SABLES-BITUMES - FORMULATION MODERNE ET APPLICATION AU DIMENSIONNEMENT

The aim of the authors was to complete the knowledge on the modulus, resistance to fatigue and creep of three sand-bitumens corresponding to categories b, c and d. Using the Shell flexible pavement design method, the authors attempted to transcribe in terms of pavement thickness the different mechanical characteristics obtained for the above categories. To simplify the results, the latter were presented in a form similar to that of the catalogue of bridge and highway structures. The structures obtained show that under certain conditions, sand-bitumen mixtures can be used not only in sub-bases but also in roadbases. (TRRL)
