A STUDY OF THE USE OF VISCOSITY-GRADED ASPHALT CEMENTS IN EXPERIMENTAL SECTIONS OF PAVEMENT

The study treats of the investigation into the feasibility of using viscosity-graded rather than penetration graded asphalt cements. Four projects were constructed using both viscosity graded and penetration graded asphalt cements. They were observed and evaluated durin construction in 1968 and for a five-year period through 1973. This investigation was instrumental in subsequent adoption of viscosity-graded asphalt cement specifications, with corresponding reduction of testing, storage and handling problems.
