DESIGN OF BITUMINOUS PLANT MIXES FOR ROAD AND AIRFIELD PAVING

Thin layers of bituminous plant mix have been used for many years in Australia for the surfacing of pavements and, more recently, greater depths have been laid to form part of the load spreading structure. In this paper attention is directed to the design of the mix composition (aggregate grading and aggregate, filler and binder proportions) and it is assumed that the quality of the mix constituents is acceptable. Design of the mix composition (and, to a certain extent, the acceptable quality of the constituents) depends not only on the situation of the material in the pavement but also in the climatic conditions and the expected traffic at the site. /TRRL/
