EXPERIMENTAL ROAD OF ASPHALT CONCRETE (HAB 16) WITH DIFFERENT QUALITIES OF WEARING COURSE AGGREGATE. 1: DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION

PROVVAEG MED OLIKA STENMATERIALKVALITETER I SLITLAGER AV ASFLATBETONG. 1: UTFOERANDERAPPORT

During the summer 1977 an experimental road with 8 different surfacing aggregate qualities was constructed. The purpose of the experimental road is to study the effect of the aggregate quality (fraction 8-16 mm) on the pavement wear caused by studded tyres. The surfacing is composed of dense asphalt concrete hab 16. The surfacings are of two types - a conventional type (30% of the aggregates 8 mm) and a more open graded type (45% 8 mm). The pavement wear will be compared to the wear obtained at a test in the traffic simulator of the institute. This test included most of the aggregates tested on the experimental road. The test was reported in VTI Rapport no 125. The wear measurements will be carried out during the next winter season. /TRRL/
