PERFORMANCE AND DURABILITY OF BITUMINOUS MATERIALS. 24: A NEW DESIGN METHOD FOR DENSE COLD MIXTURES

Existing mix design methods are related primarily to open or semi-dense cold mixtures. This paper presents a new mix design method, exclusively geared, to dense graded cold mixtures having either continuous or gap graded gradation curve. The methodology uses the Marshall equipment and a modified marshall procedure. The design criteria are: soaked stability, retained stability, water absorption, total voids content, degree of coating, bitumen film thickness and creep stiffness coefficient.
