GUIDE FOR THE DESIGN AND USE OF ASPHALTIC CONCRETE

The guide is primarily for the use of New Zealand road engineers and is complementary to the "manual of sealing and paving practice" published by the n z national roads board. The uses of asphaltic concrete are discussed, and the conditions required in each case. The principles of pavement design are outlined and the following properties of asphaltic concrete and factors affecting them are discussed: stability, durability, flexibility, fatigue resistance, resistance to fracture, skid resistance, permeability, workability. The choice of appropriate mix properties is discussed and examples of the application of mix design are given. Identification and remedial treatment of failures in asphaltic concrete are dealt with. /TRRL/
