RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN ASPHALT PAVING

DEVELOPMENTS IN ASPHALT PAVING OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS HAVE BEEN GREATLY ACCELERATED. THESE DEVELOPMENTS ARE REVIEWED IN ASPHALT QUALITY, STRUCTURAL SECTION DESIGN, COMPACTION OF ASPHALT CONCRETE, DEVELOPMENT OF PLANT EQUIPMENT AND SPREADING AND FINISHING EQUIPMENT. WORK IS PROGRESSING IN THE IMPROVEMENT OF ASPHALT SPECIFICATION AS WELL AS IN RESEARCH ON HOW BETTER TO UTILIZE ASPHALT IN DESIGN. INVESTIGATIONS ARE UNDER WAY TO IMPROVE PLACING AND COMPACTION TECHNIQUES WHILE GREAT INTEREST IS EVIDENT TO INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY OF PLANT EQUIPMENT. AUTOMATION WILL UNDOUBTEDLY BE IMPROVED AND REFINED.
