A COOPERATIVE STUDY OF FILLERS IN ASPHALTIC CONCRETE

THIS WAS A COOPERATIVE INVESTIGATION BY A NUMBER OF STATE HIGHWAY LABORATORIES, THE PUBLIC ROADS BITUMINOUS LABORATORY AND THE CRUSHED STONE ASSOCIATION. THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY WAS /1/ TO CORRELATE THE TEST RESULTS OF THE IMMERSION- COMPRESSION TEST FROM A NUMBER OF LABORATORIES, /2/ TO DETERMINE THE WATER-RESISTANT PROPERTIES OF BITUMINOUS CONCRETE MIXTURES COMPOSED OF VARIOUS TYPES OF COARSE AND FINE AGGREGATES, AND /3/ TO DETERMINE THE RELATIVE VALUE OF A NUMBER OF STONE DUSTS AND FLY-ASH MATERIALS AS FILLERS FOR BITUMINOUS CONCRETE. THIS STUDY PROVIDES CONCLUSIVE PROOF OF THE HIGH VALUE OF FLY-ASH AS A FILLER FOR BITUMINOUS CONCRETE PARTICULARILY WHEN EVALUATED ON THE BASIS OF THE STRENGTH AND WATER RESISTANT PROPERTIES OF THE MIXTURE. IT WAS PROPOSED, THAT, SINCE FLY-ASH FROM VARIOUS PRODUCERS DIFFER WIDELY THE MATERIAL SHOULD BE TESTED PRIOR TO USE. /AUTHOR/
