Development of a mix design methodology for asphalt

Several mixture design methods have been developed over time, the purpose of which is developing a mixture that is capable of providing acceptable performance based on certain predefined set of criteria. This is normally achieved by selecting an optimum design asphalt cement content that will achieve a balance among the desired volumetric 1

An Investigation of the Effect of Ndesign Values on

Asphalt concrete mixes were designed at Ndesign levels of 50, 75, 100 and 125 gyrations for six different surface mixes. Asphalt content was determined for each mix using the Superpave design method. Dynamic modulus specimens were prepared at the determined optimum asphalt contents and dynamic modulus (E*) was measured using the Asphalt Mixture

Porous asphalt concrete: A review of design, construction

Jan 06,  · Porous asphalt concrete (PAC) is an open-graded friction course that is specifically designed to have high air void contents for removing water from the pavement surface. PAC surfaces, which include open-graded friction courses, permeable friction courses, and drainage asphalt pavements, have increasingly gained acceptance among agencies and industry in the world. PAC might be

Evaluating The Field Performance of Asphalt Mixtures in

A technician runs the Simple Performance Tester to evaluate an asphalt mixture for its response to permanent deformation (rutting) and fatigue cracking. The tester will be useful in designing the pavement structure (for example, determining the appropriate thickness of each layer of pavement), because it outputs a stiffness, or E*, value.
