TEMPERATURE-VISCOSITY RELATIONSHIPS OF SELECTED ASPHALT CEMENTS

TO GAIN INFORMATION ON THE APPROPRIATE TEMPERATURE TO OBTAIN A GIVEN DESIRABLE VISCOSITY FOR THE VARIOUS ASPHALT CEMENTS COMMONLY USED IN OREGON, VISCOSITIES WERE DETERMINED AT THREE OR MORE TEMPERATURES NEAR THE MIXING TEMPERATURE. AMONG THE ASPHALTS TESTED, WIDE VARIATIONS IN HIGH TEMPERATURE VISCOSITIES WERE FOUND BETWEEN THE ASPHALTS OF SEVERAL PRODUCERS. ALSO, SIGNIFICANT VARIATIONS EXISTED BETWEEN DIFFERENT SHIPMENTS FROM A GIVEN PRODUCER. THE TEMPERATURE-VISCOSITY CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ASPHALTS TESTED VARIED TO A GREAT ENOUGH EXTENT TO MAKE IT DESIRABLE TO KNOW THE VISCOSITY AT ONE OR MORE TEMPERATURES NEAR THE MIXING TEMPERATURE. /AUTHOR/
