PDF Performance of Recycled Asphalt Pavement as Coarse

Nigeria. The old asphalt pavement was a fine-graded, hot-mix asphaltic concrete. The waste asphalt pavement rubbles were crushed, sieved and graded to sizes similar to that of the natural gravel. The RAP coarse aggregate consist therefore of "asphalt-mortar" (asphalt binder-sand-filler matrix) coated aggregates retained on 4.75 mm sieve.

Holloway - Accuracy of Pavement Texture Measurement

sand patch texture depth for this negative textured pavement, on average 0.8mm greater that obtained from the positive textured pavement surfaces as shown in Figure 5.5. This emphasised the necessity for an appropriate correlation to be adopted for negative textured pavements, and especially in the provision of data in a contractual environment.

Contribution of Micro and Macro Texture for Predicting

pavement sections were evaluated, including different surface types such as hot-mix asphalt (HMA), surface treatment, and concrete sidewalk. Among the principal conclusions, it was found that there is not a unique relationship between texture and friction.

voids in the aggregate mat and then moves upward to the pavement surface under traffic and with heat expansion in a non-reversible, cumulative process. VISUAL IDENTIFICATION Maintenance personnel have described bleeding as the rapid onset of live (liquid), excess asphalt on the pavement surface which rises above the aggre-gate.

2D-wavelet based micro and macro texture analysis for

In ice and snow weather, the surface texture characteristics of asphalt pavement change, which will significantly affect the skid resistance performance of asphalt pavement. In this study, five asphalt mixture types of AC-5, AC-13, AC-16, SMA-13, SMA-16 were prepared under three conditions of the original state, ice and snow. In this paper, a 2D-wavelet transform approach is proposed to

PDF Microtexture Performance of EAF Slags Used as Aggregate in

aggregate in asphalt concrete for pavement surface layers [11,13]. In addition to adequate mechanical characteristics, steelmaking slags for asphalt mixes must have other suitable features related to aggregate shape, surface roughness, and texture in order to enhance the adherence and skid resistance of pavement surface layers.

Building Better Asphalt Trails - American Trails

Composite sections, consisting of asphalt pavement overlying aggregate base course, have an advantage in the ease of grading the base course to the proper level for placement of the asphalt pavement. If base course is used it should be a minus 1-1/2" and minus 3/4" aggregate size.

Type I aggregate slurries are sometimes used as a preparatory treatment for HMA overlays or surface treatments. When used on top of chip seal, referred to as cape seal. SMA: Stone matrix asphalt. RAP: Reclaimed asphalt pavement.

PDF A review on fatigue and rutting performance of asphalt mixes

concrete and stabilise the binder on surface of aggregate particles and prevent from any movement at higher temperature. Key words: Asphalt pavement, fatigue, rutting, aggregate gradation, additives. INTRODUCTION Asphalt concrete is still a popular type of pavement because it provides considerable stability and durability

Application of Epoxy-Asphalt Composite in Asphalt Paving

One of the failure mechanisms associated with asphalt paving layers, especially on steel deck bridges, is large permanent deformation, which adversely affects its long-term performance in service. Thus, epoxy resin was introduced in asphalt paving industry to tackle permanent deformation of asphalt mixtures due to its thermosetting nature. In this review, epoxy resin as a dominant component of

3.2 Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) - RAP consists of salvaged, milled, pulverized, broken, or crushed asphalt pavement. RAP contains "RAP aggregate" and bituminous materials hereinafter referred to as "RAP Binder". The gradation of the RAP material shall conform to the requirements of the specifications.

Along with ASTM D5821, two additional aggregate angularity tests were conducted to evaluate the angularity and texture of the coarse aggregates; 1) AASHTO T326, Uncompacted Void Content of Coarse Aggregates, and 2) Aggregate Imaging System (AIMS). Each of the asphalt mixtures designed and tested during the study used

Influence of the Surface Roughness of Aggregates on the

binders, and therefore in the asphalt pavement performance and durability. Previous works recognize the importance of the morphological characteristics of aggregates, including their surface texture, in the adhesion quality between the binder and the aggregate and the relationship
