FUTURE PAVING BITUMEN QUALITY REQUIREMENTS. THE UNITED STATES STRATEGIC HIGHWAY RESEARCH PROGRAM. SHARING THE BENEFITS. CONFERENCE ORGANIZED BY THE INSTITUTION OF CIVIL ENGINEERS IN COOPERATION WITH U.S. STRATEGIC HIGHWAY RESEARCH PROGRAM, 29TH-31ST OCTOBER 1990, TARA HOTEL, KENSINGTON, LONDON

The paper discusses the basic quality aspects of a bituminous binder, i.e. visco elasticity/coheshion, adhesion and durability and rational tests to ensure adequate performance in those areas. Rational quality requirements in the area of adhesion, cohesion, durability and volatility are described and visualized in a bitumen QUALGON which is a template for performance. QUALGON is a guide to predict the performance of all bitumens whether produced from traditional or new crude oils or using altered process conditions.
