PROCESSING OF SAND-ASPHALT-SULPHER MIXES

This paper describes three sand-asphalt-sulphur mix processing sequences, and laboratory test specimen fabrication techniques to yield mix specimens corresponding to pavements constructed without roller compaction. Stability, tensile, flexural and fatigue test data indicate that the mixing process entailing addition of sulphur to sand-asphalt yields the best results. Despite the high air void contents, test data indicate the mixes to be relatively impervious. Mixes were prepared using a variety of aggregates ranging from fine, one-sized sand to coarse gravels, to explore the range of aggregate gradations potentially suitable for processing with sulphur. The stability of the mixes was found to increase with increasing sulphur content. Mixing plant modifications for automatic processing of sand-asphalt-sulphur mixes are outlined.
