DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW BITUMINOUS STABILIZER

THE RESULTS ARE COMPARED OF VARIOUS LABORATORY TESTS ON TWO SOILS WITH A VARIETY OF LIQUID AND EMULSIFIED ASPHALTS. THE RESULTS CONFIRMED THAT THE MATERIAL DESIGNATED AS "BITUMINOUS STABILIZER" IS SUPERIOR IN ITS STABILITY CHARACTERISTICS TO OTHER LIQUID OR EMULSIFIED ASPHALTS TESTED ON THE GRADED SILICA SAND AND AGGREGATE BASE USED IN THE STUDY. WHEN ALL ASPHALTS USED IN THIS STUDY WERE TESTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE DESIGN METHOD USED BY MANY AGENCIES, SIGNIFICANT VARIATIONS OF STABILITY PROPERTIES WERE NOT NOTED. WHEN THE ASPHALT MIXES WERE ANALYZED BY METHODS THAT WOULD PRODUCE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH AND RESISTANCE TO SHEARING FORCES, SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES OF EXTREMELY LARGE MAGNITUDES WERE NOTED IN THE SERIES OF CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTS. THIS INVESTIGATION IS PRIMARILY CONCERNED WITH THE RESULTS OF A PORTION OF THE LABORATORY TESTING IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW MATERIAL FOR STABILIZATION OF ROADWAY MATERIALS. /AUTHOR/
