SOME PROPERTIES OF PAVING BITUMEN OF PETROLEUM ORIGIN PRODUCED IN AUSTRALIA SINCE 1966

The deformation and flow properties and resistance to hardening by oxidation of samples of paving bitumens of petroleum origin received by ARRB since 1966 are listed. The bitumens were mainly normal production materials from Australian refineries but include experimental bitumens which were manufactured for road trials or subsequent production. The test procedures are briefly described and the relevance of the test results to the performance of the bitumen in service indicated. The effect of crude petroleum source and refinery processing on the properties of paving bitumens is briefly discussed. /Author/TRRL/
