THE INFLUENCE OF THE FILLER /IN DUTCH/

"FREE" AND "FIXED" BITUMEN IN BITUMEN-FILLER MIXTURES ARE DISCUSSED. THE VARIOUS TYPES OF FILLER AND THE TESTS FOR DETERMINING THEIR PROPERTIES ARE DESCRIBED. THE RESULTS OBTAINED BY THE RING-AND-BALL SOFTENING POINT TESTS ARE DISCUSSED. SPREADING AND COMPACTION CHARACTERISTICS ARE TAKEN FOR CRITERIA IN EVALUATING THE INFLUENCE OF THE FILLER ON THE WORKABILITY OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES. THE EFFECT OF THE FILLER ON DENSITY AND MARSHALL-PROPERTIES IS DESCRIBED. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THE INFLUENCE OF THE FILLER ON THE COMPACTION PROCESS AND ON THE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF THE MIXTURES CAN BE EXPLAINED SATISFACTORILY. /SWOV/RWL/RRL
