THE INFLUENCE OF THE HEIGHT OF CORES AND MARSHALL SPECIMENS ON THE DENSITY AND STATE OF COMPACTION

DE INVLOED VAN DE HOOGTE VAN BOORKERNEN EN VAN MARSHALL PROEFSTUKKEN OP DE DICTHEID EN DE VERDICHTINGSGRAAD

The term state of compaction is defined and the state of compaction is discussed in relation to the mechanical performance of asphalt. Together with the Marshall test the determination of the state of compaction has been adopted in the Dutch specifications since 1962. Three main factors influence the density and the state of compaction of specimens: (1) the kind of mixture, (2) the method of determining the state of compaction, (3) the layer thickness or height of the specimen to be recompacted. Research results of the determination of the relation between state of compaction and specimen height of Marshall specimens for dense asphaltic concrete and open-textured asphaltic concrete are discussed. For the determination of the relation between the state of compaction and layer thickness of cores, research results are discussed for dense asphaltic concrete, open-textured asphaltic concrete, gravel asphaltic concrete and sand asphalt. Conclusions are drawn. /TRRL/
