ASPHALT IN FLEXIBLE ROAD CONSTRUCTION

THE ARTICLE EXAMINES THE ELASTIC MODULI AND LOAD-SPREADING PROPERTIES OF VARIOUS BITUMINOUS MATERIALS. DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF PROCEDURES DEVELOPED BY THE SHELL ORGANIZATION FOR ESTIMATING DESIGN CURVES FOR ASPHALT ROADS OVER A PARTICULAR SOIL FOUNDATION AND FOR VARIOUS TRAFFIC INTENSITIES, COMPARISON IS MADE WITH DIRECT ROAD EXPERIMENTS CARRIED OUT BY THE ROAD RESEARCH LABORATORY AT BOROUGHBRIDGE AND ALCONBURY HILL. THE CONSTRUCTION RECOMMENDED FOR ASPHALT PAVEMENTS IN GERMANY, ITALY AND AUSTRIA ARE GIVEN, AND IT IS CONCLUDED THAT ROLLED ASPHALT SHOULD PROVIDE A BETTER ROAD BASE THAN DENSE MACADAMS.
