THE INFLUENCE OF BINDER AND AGGREGATE IN BITUMINOUS MIXTURES

THE MULTIPLICITY OF METHODS AVAILABLE FOR TESTING BITUMINOUS MIXTURES IS DISCUSSED. AN ATTEMPT IS MADE TO RELATE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS TO THE PARAMETERS OF VARIOUS TESTS SIMILARLY AFFECTED BY THE SAME VARIABLES IN ORDER TO DISCOVER WHICH INTRINSIC PROPERTIES OF THE MIX ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OBSERVED PHENOMENOLOGICAL VARIATIONS. IT IS EMPHASIZED THAT TEST ENVIRONMENTS VARY FAR MORE ON THE ROAD THAN IN THE LABORATORY, AND THAT UNLESS LABORATORY TEST CONDITIONS APPROXIMATE TO THE ROAD ENVIRONMENT, LABORATORY TESTS MAY PLACE MATERIALS IN AN OPPOSITE ORDER IN MERIT TO THAT OBSERVED IN SERVICE. /RRL/
