DENSIFICATION OF ASPHALT PAVEMENTS BY TRAFFIC. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by Charles R. Foster, presented at the American Society of Civil Engineers Specialty Conference, Airport Pavement Innovations--Theory to Practice (Vicksburg, Mississippi, September 8-10, 1993), is presented. The discussion focuses on the densification of asphalt pavements and the assumption that plastic deformation (rutting) will continue to occur until engineers understand and appreciate the interrelated concept of mix design, laboratory compaction, degree of field compaction, and further traffic densification. Discussion is followed by closure from the author.
