OKLAHOMA RESEARCH WITH ASBESTOS SHORT FIBER IN ASPHALTIC CONCRETE

A TEST ROAD WAS CONSTRUCTED WITH SHORT ASBESTOS FIBER IN ASPHALTIC CONCRETE PAVEMENT TO COLLECT DEFLECTION DATA AND OBSERVE AND EVALUATE THE PERFORMANCE OF AN ASBESTOS FIBER ADDITIVE IN A HOT-MIX, HOT-LAID ASPHALTIC CONCRETE PAVEMENT AS COMPARED TO THE OKLAHOMA STANDARD ASPHALTIC CONCRETE PAVEMENT. BY VARYING THE MIX DESIGN WITH DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF ASBESTOS FIBER, ASPHALTIC CEMENT AND AGGREGATES, THE ASPHALTIC CONCRETE CAN BE MADE EITHER STIFFER OR MORE FLEXIBLE THAN THE STANDARD ASPHALTIC CONCRETE. THE TEST PANELS WERE DESIGNED FOR CONTROLLED FAILURES TO ACCUR WITHIN A TWO TO THREE-YEAR PERIOD. TEST RESULTS ARE PRESENTED FOR THIS PERIOD.
