This paper describes the research conducted to examine the engineering properties of sulfur-asphalt mixtures, including attempts to determine categorically the potential advantages of sulfur-asphalt as a road construction material. More specifically the objectives of the paper are to: review the ideas behind the ideal mix as proposed in 1972, outline the research approach used to determine the properties and characteristics of sulfur-asphalt as related to the ideal mix, describe some of the results and conclusions drawn from detailed low temperature and high temperature studies of sulfur-asphalt materials, determine the potential advantages of sulfur-asphalt as compared to conventional asphalt concrete, and define the capabilities and limitations of the new product.
