DENSITY STUDIES OF ASPHALT CONCRETE

THE INITIAL PROPERTIES OF PAVEMENTS, AND EARLY AND LATE SEASON PAVING WERE INVESTIGATED TO DETERMINE THEIR EFFECT ON PAVEMENT PERFORMANCE. MEASURED PERFORMANCE DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM 44 TEST SITES LOCATED THROUGHOUT THE STATE. FROM VISUAL, GRAPHICAL, AND MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS OF THE DATA IT WAS FOUND THAT (1) A PAVEMENT'S INITIAL PROPERTIES, ESPECIALLY PERCENT OF VOIDS IN THE MINERAL AGGREGATE FILLED WITH ASPHALT CEMENT, ARE INDICATIVE OF PAVEMENT PERFORMANCE AND THAT (2) PAVING AT LOWER TEMPERATURES ENCOUNTERED IN THE SPRING AND FALL MAY HAVE A DETRIMENTAL EFFECT ON A PAVEMENT'S DURABILITY. OTHER FACTORS CONSIDERED TO INFLUENCE PAVEMENT PERFORMANCE WERE ALSO STUDIED AND THEIR INVESTIGATION IS INCLUDED. /AUTHOR/
