SUGGESTED METHOD FOR THE PREPARATION AND TESTING OF ASPHALT EMULSION TREATED MIXTURES USING MARSHALL EQUIPMENT

The study described deals with the establishment of a method for preparing and testing asphalt emulsion treated mixtures (AETM) using the Marshall equipment. One aggregate type (sand and gravel), and one asphalt emulsion type and grade were used in the study. The AETM were evaluated with emphasis on the coating, workability of the mix, ease of handling of the mix, curing rate and amount of moisture retained in the mixture before and after compaction. Based on these factors, a method for preparing the standard Marshall specimen was developed. Using the pre-determined method of preparing and testing the standard Marshall specimens, a laboratory investigation concerning the effect of asphalt emulsion content and initial added moisture content on the design parameters and properties of asphalt emulsion treated mixtures using Marshall equipment is presented.
