FIELD MANAGEMENT OF HOT MIX ASPHALT PAVEMENTS

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the factors that contribute to differences that occur in the properties of a hot mix asphalt (HMA) mix designed in the laboratory and the properties of the "same" mix produced in an asphalt batch or drum mix plant. Emphasis is placed on the causes for the differences in the mix characteristics between the lab and the field. Major areas considered are: aggregate, asphalt binder, plant production process, hot mix storage, and hauling of the mix. The paper also provides a ranking system to prioritize the importance of each factor in contributing to the differences which may exist.
