PERFORMANCE OF ASPHALT CONCRETE PAVEMENT MIXTURES PRODUCED BY THE DRUM MIXER PROCESS

The paper reports on a study to evaluate the performance of several projects constructed with drum mixed asphalt concrete. A 1970 prototype plant was used on one project, while the others were completed in 1972-73 using commercial models on large volume highway and airport jobs. Each site was visited in 1975, samples obtained and tested, and the findings evaluated with respect to overall quality and comparisons made with conventional pavements. Evaluations were made of overall quality in terms of Present Serviceability Index (PSI). The results were compared to original construction data and evaluated in terms of general quality as well as compared to similar projects constructed with conventional asphalt plant mixes.
