AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY ON USE OF RUBBER IN ASPHALT PAVEMENTS

THIS BIBLIOGRAPHY INCLUDES ANNOTATIONS OF PUBLISHED ARTICLES WHICH HAVE BEEN DOCUMENTED BY FACTS AND FIGURES OR CONTAIN SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND OBSERVATIONS PERTAINING TO THE USE OF RUBBER IN ASPHALT PAVEMENTS. FOR PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS, THE INCLUDED MATERIAL REFERENCING PAPERS, ARTICLES, AND PATENTS ARE ARRANGED CHRONOLOGICALLY IN FIVE PERTINENT SECTIONS: (1) "EVALUATION OF PAVEMENT REQUIREMENTS AND FAILURES", (2) "REVIEW ARTICLES", (3) "EFFECTS OF RUBBERIZING AND TESTING PROCEDURES", (4) FIELD TESTS, AND (5) "PATENTS". THE MATERIAL INCLUDED UNDER THE HEADING "EVALUATION OF PAVEMENT REQUIREMENTS AND FAILURES" PROVIDES NEEDED BACKGROUND INFORMATION OF A GENERAL NATURE, BUT DOES NOT CONSIDER EFFECTS OF RUBBERIZED ASPHALTS AS DO THE PAPERS, ARTICLES, AND PATENTS REFERENCED UNDER THE OTHER HEADINGS. AN APPENDED PAPER BY F. S. ROSTLER ENTITLED "RUBBER IN ASPHALT PAVEMENTS" PRESENTS A REVIEW AND OVERALL EVALUATION OF THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF THE USE OF ELASTOMERIC POLYMERS (RUBBER) IN ASPHALT PAVEMENTS, AN ANALYSIS OF THE NEED FOR FURTHER CONSIDERATION OF THE USE OF RUBBER IN ASPHALT AS A MEANS FOR IMPROVING HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ACCOMPLISHING ANY DESIRABLE OBJECTIVES. /AUTHOR/
