EFFECT OF WATER ON BITUMEN-AGGREGATE MIXTURES

THIS REPORT IS A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW AND SUMMARIZATION OF THE LITERATURE ON THE SUBJECT OF ADHESION AND STRIPPING OF BITUMINOUS BINDER AND AGGREGATE. A REVIEW IS MADE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PROPERTIES OF AGGREGATES AND BITUMINOUS MATERIAL AND THEIR EFFECTS ON THE PHENOMENA OF ADHESION. THE THEORETICAL CONCEPTS OF ADHESION AND STRIPPING ARE REVIEWED BY CONSIDERATION AND EVALUATION OF SOME OF THE THERMODYNAMIC VARIABLES AFFECTING THE BEHAVIOR OF THE BINDER-AGGREGATE SYSTEMS. THE NATURE OF THE BOND BETWEEN BINDER AND AGGREGATE AND THE EFFECT OF FORCES AND DEFORMATIONS INDUCED BY TRAFFIC ARE CONSIDERED FROM A RHEOLOGICAL VIEWPOINT. THE THEORETICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF TESTS USED TO DETERMINE RHEOLOGICAL PROPERITES ARE DISCUSSED. THE AUTHOR REVIEWS THE TEST PROCEDURES OF THE MANY EMPIRICAL STRIPPING TESTS AND SIMULATED TRAFFIC TESTS THAT HAVE BEEN REPORTED IN THE LITERATURE AND COMMENTS ON THEIR USE AND ON THEIR SHORTCOMINGS. ALSO REVIEWED IS THE FUNCTION OF ADDITIVES TO IMPROVE ADHESION. THE AUTHOR SUMMARIZES THE STATUS OF PRESENT-DAY KNOWLEDGE OF ADHESION AND STRIPPING BEHAVIOR IN BITUMINOUS MIXTURES AND PRESENTS A VERY COMPREHENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY ON THE SUBJECT. /BPR/
