LESSONS DRAWN FROM EXPERIMENTAL ASPHALTIC CONCRETE ROADS

DOOR EXPERIMENTELE ASFALBETONWEGEN VERWORVEN KENNIS

The judicious selection of mix design (54% of 2;16 crushed stone, 36% snad, 1;3 of which is crushing sand and 2;3 natural sand, 10% of limestone filler, and 6% of 50;70 or 80;100 bitumen as binder), care during manufacture and laying, and choice of the right temperature for rilling lead to satisfactory compaction (5% maximum of percentage of voids) and roughness. Some physico-chemical characteristics (asphaltene content) and rheological properties of bituminous binders (non-newtonian characteristics) also influence laying and rolling. Observations made on some experimental sections showed cracks and wear of the surface mortar. Laboratory studies of binders led to the probable cause of accelerated aging evolution in time of bitumen penetration at values lower than 40 with a percentage in non-soluble materials in normal heptane at a temperature of 27 degrees. ;TRRL;
