MIX DESIGN METHODS FOR BASE AND SURFACE COURSES USING EMULSIFIED ASPHALT, A STATE-OF-THE-ART REPORT

A comprehensive literature search was conducted to determine the state-of-the-art in mixture designs for pavements using emulsified asphalts. The widely used Marshall or Hveem mix design method using hot asphalt cement generally serve as their basis. Preparation and fabrication of specimens are similar in each method with differences existing primarily in the curing and testing schemes. Although several methods exist, no single method has been adopted by the highway community. A common method, used on a nationwide basis, needs to be established so that performance data can be readily exchanged among user agencies. /FHWA/
