CHARACTERIZATION OF BITUMEN-TREATED SAND FOR DESERT ROAD CONSTRUCTION

This paper summarizes the findings of an experimental program designed to permit evaluation of the accumulation of permanent deformation in bitumen-treated sand layers by applying the more rational methods of pavement analysis and design. The primary part of the work consists of the characterization of the cumulative deformation response of bitumen-sand specimens tested under simulated conditions of temperature and dynamic stress. Results have been analyzed by using multiple regression analysis, and predictive relationships of rut depths are formulated therefrom. (Author)
