This paper provides a discussion and points of reference for unbound aggregate specifications used in road construction in the UK. The specifications in everyday use are of a prescriptive nature based around a particle size distribution envelope. Unbound aggregates are generally only utilized in the foundation levels of the road pavement. The role of performance tests is discussed together with the current status of a British Standard for unbound aggregates.(A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 827698.
