ASPHALTIC CONCRETE MIXTURES DIFFERING IN STONE CONTENT, MAXIMUM GRAIN SIZE, TYPE OF FILLER, TYPE OF ASPHALTIC BITUMEN, FILLER-BITUMEN RATIO BY BOLUME, AND TOTAL VOLUME OF FILLER AND BITUMEN FACTOR, WHICH IS DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL TO THE MASS-VISCOSITY AND IS RELATED TO THE RATIO. LIMITS AND OPTIMUM VALUES FOR THE FACTOR FOUND IN PRACTICE ARE COMPARED WITH THEORETICALLY DERIVED VALUES, AND THE INFLUENCE OF THE FILLER, TYPE OF ASPHALTIC BITUMEN, AND STONE GRADING IS DISCUSSED. /SWOV/
