REPORT ON DESIGNATION FOR SURFACE TREATMENTS

ALL TYPES OF SURFACE APPLICATIONS OF BITUMINOUS MATERIALS HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IN THE REPORT ON BITUMINOUS SURFACE TREATMENTS SINCE IT WAS POINTED OUT THAT THE SAME PROCEDURES ARE CALLED BY DIFFERENT NAMES IN DIFFERENT AREAS. THESE DIFFERENCES IN TERMINOLOGY MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO COMPARE PRACTICES, TECHNIQUES, BITUMINOUS MATERIALS, AND AGGREGATES USED BY VARIOUS STATES AND AGENCIES. THEREFORE, QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO EACH HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT DOING SURFACE TREATMENT WORK TO OBTAIN THE NOMENCLATURE AND DESCRIPTION OF THE PARTICULAR TYPE USED. FROM THE EXCELLENT RESPONSES A SYSTEM FOR IDENTIFYING SURFACE TREATMENTS WAS DEVELOPED IN WHICH TYPE OF TREATMENT, METHOD OF CONSTRUCTION, AND NOMINAL THICKNESS WERE CODED. IN THIS WAY, ANY SURFACE TREATMENT CAN BE IDENTIFIED WITHOUT HAVING TO DECIPHER LOCAL TERMINOLOGY.
