CORRELATION OF TENSILE PROPERTIES WITH STABILITY AND COHESIOMETER VALUES FOR ASPHALT-TREATED MATERIALS

THE CORRELATION BETWEEN THE TENSILE PROPERTIES OF ASPHALT-TREATED MATERIALS TESTED IN INDIRECT TENSION AND THE STABILITY AND COHESIOMETER VALUES FOR IDENTICAL COMPANION SPECIMENS TESTED IN THE HVEEM STABILOMETER AND COHESIOMETER ARE DESCRIBED. THE PARAMETERS OBTAINED FROM THE INDIRECT TENSILE TEST INCLUDED TENSILE STRENGTH AT FAILURE, ESTIMATED TENSILE STRAIN AT FAILURE, POISSON'S RATIO, AND MODULUS OF ELASTICITY, EACH OF WHICH WAS COMPARED WITH BOTH THE STABILITY AND COHESIOMETER VALUES. CONCLUSIONS BASED ON THE CORRELATION RESULTS ARE PRESENTEED IN THE REPORT AND INDICATE THAT CORRELATIONS BETWEEN THE PARAMETERS OBTAINED FROM THE INDIRECT TENSILE TEST AND THE HVEEM STABILITY AND COHESIOMETER VALUES ARE DEPENDENT UPON THE CONFINES OF THE STUDY. IN GENERAL, STABILITY VALUES CORRELATED WITH POISSON'S RATIO AND TENSILE STRAIN, WHILE THE COHESIOMETER VALUES CORRELATED WITH MODULUS OF ELASTICITY, TENSILE STRENGTH, AND TENSILE STRAIN. /AUTHOR/
