    Researchers ranked performance and conducted statistical analyses using both field and laboratory results to compare the rutting performance of three coarse-graded replacement sections that showed poor performance and one fine-graded section with good performance. They also compared results from both RD analysis methods and both loading by: A finegraded mix should be at least three times the nominal maximum aggregate size (NMAS), or 3 stones thick, to do the same. Here is a question using a hypothetical example: Will a mm NMAS Superpave coarse-graded mix that is one-stone thick provide adequate density? The answer is, of course, “no” because it won’t compact.

Rutting or permanent deformation (PD) is one of the most critical distresses occurring in hot-mix asphalt (HMA) pavements. However, despite all of the recent efforts aimed at producing new test methods and better road materials, HMA rutting is still prevalent, particularly in hot regions and/or on highways with heavy truck-traffic by: 5.

Published Date: It is also providing some of the earliest data on the performance of Superpave asphalt mixture designs under high rates of heavy truck loading. When Superpave-designed test sections placed at the track in June had very rapid rutting failures.

The aggregate gradation of the hot mix asphalts (HMA) used in southern Nevada before generally fell above the maximum density line (fine graded aggregate mix).

Various asphaltic concrete pavem. As extracted from the DSS, three Texas commonly used HMA mixes (ranging from fine to coarse-graded) and five in-service highways were used for the study. Overall, the laboratory HWTT yielded good correlations with field rutting performance data with a coefficient of determination generally exceeding 60% for most of the HMA rutting parameters Author: Lubinda F.

Podborochynski, Ania AnthonyA. Anthony, Brent M. This paper mainly investigated material design and performance of asphalt rubber stone mastic mix (AR-SMA). The rotation viscosity test was used to ascertain adoption of fiber in AR-SMA.

Due to the swelling of asphalt rubber mortar, the gap-coarse graded aggregate must be used in asphalt rubber concrete to provide enough free space. Thus, it is important that pavement performance for coarse gradations be evaluated.

Within this research work, performance evaluation took place with the use of the dynamic modulus test in indirect tension mode on coarse-graded mixtures consisting of field cores from 9 different pavements located in five districts of Minnesota. WesTrack was the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) test facility in Nevada for developing performance-related specifications for hot-mix asphalt pavement construction.

The main objective of this study is to investigate the influence that asphalt mixture morphology aspects have on its overall ageing behavior.

Since mixture morphology is controllable, having insight into how the various morphological parameters influence the mixture’s long-term behavior can be of great value to optimize its design, regardless Cited by: Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

The performance of hot-mix asphalt (HMA) is largely determined by the characteristics of its constituents: asphalt binder and aggregate. In developing the Superpave mix design method, the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP, –) targeted the properties of asphalt binders and HMA and their effects on pavement performance.

Based on the report by the independent WesTrack evaluation group, “Performance of Coarse Graded Mixes at WesTrack - Premature Rutting” (FHWA Final Report, ), the mixture performance at WesTrack was different than typically seen on other high truck traffic pavements.3/5(4).
