Objectives

Phase I ¿ Evaluate the sensitivities of tests used to measure the rutting resistance of an asphalt paving mixture, to changes in three material properties: (1) voids in the mineral aggregate, (2) fine aggregate angularity, and (3) aggregate gradation. Four tests were evaluated: (1) a full-scale accelerated pavement tester, (2) a laboratory wheel-tracking test called the PurWheel, (3) a triaxial compression test, and (4) the Superpave Shear Tester. Phase II ¿ Expansion of Phase I. The properties of the materials tested in Phase I were varied widely in order to evaluate the pavement and laboratory mixture tests. The best tests were then to be used in Phase II. Under Phase II, the number and types of materials were expanded to determine how the three material properties affect rutting performance.

Comments

Study is complete. Awaiting the final report, expected in March 2002.

Subjects: Materials and Construction Pavement Design, Management, and Performance
