PDF Comparative study of Hot mix asphalt to Warm mix asphalt

the Hot Mix asphalt are the dryers, hot bins, and mixers, which emit particulate matter (PM) and a variety of gaseous rutting and the greatest difference of rutting between WMA Nearly minimum air voids achieved in total mix is 3.15% at 5.5% bitumen content lying within limits 3

Effect Of Nanopolymer Modified Binder On Hot Mix Asphalt

There are some distresses in asphalt pavements such as high temperature permanent deformation (rutting), low-temperature (thermal) cracking, and load-associated fatigue cracking. Rutting is caused by the accumulated plastic deformation (flow) in the asphalt mixture with repeated application of loads at upper pavement service temperatures.

Effects of Aggregate Structure on Hot-Mix Asphalt Rutting

restricted zone is not a controlling factor affecting hot-mix asphalt rutting performance for low traffic volume local pavements. The fineness of aggregate gradation rather than the restricted zone seems to be a factor that affects rutting performance. Keywords: Superpave, restricted zone, rutting performance, low traffic volume pavement 1.

rutting resistance of asphalt mixture. 3.2.3 Moisture Susceptibility Test The AASHTO T-283 test is used to evaluate the moisture susceptibility of the fiber reinforced asphalt mixtures. The air voids of the specimens are controlled at 7 ± 1 %. Two groups of duplicate specimens (five samples for each group) are prepared. One group of

parameter to evaluate both the rutting and the fatigue cracking resistance of the asphalt and quality of both binder and aggregates that can affect the complex modulus. Air voids of pavement and temperature of pavement are two of the well-known section (see Figure 1), the Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) section (see Figure 2) and the

Effect of Nanomaterials on Cracking and Rutting Resistance

Hot mix asphalt specimens (150 mm diameter and 75 mm high) were compacted with 6.5-7.5% air voids using superpave gyratory compactor. Asphalt pavement analyzer (APA), semi-circular bending (SCB), and disc-shaped compact tension (DCT) were used to determine the rutting, fatigue cracking, and low-temperature cracking resistance of the mixes

Superpave Mix Design - Pavement Interactive

The optimum asphalt binder content is selected as that asphalt binder content that results in 4 percent air voids at N design. This asphalt content then must meet several other requirements: Air voids at N initial > 11 percent (for design ESALs ≥ 3 million). See Table 5 for specifics. Air voids at N max > 2 percent. See Table 5 for specifics.

Influence of Recycled Asphalt Shingles on Asphalt Binder

understanding of how the ground shingles affect the properties of the asphalt is necessary. The purpose of this research was to examine the effects of recycled asphalt shingles on asphalt binder content, mixture stiffness, and laboratory rutting performance For this project, shingles were added to hot mix asphalt mixtures at 2.5, 5, and 10

Examination of the Effects Caused By Air Voids in Asphalt

The main factor which contributes to the problems of asphalt fatigue is air voids in the asphalt mix, which decrease the road serviceability life span. Rutting in asphalt layers is initiated by an asphalt mix that is too low in shear strength to resist the imposing of repeated higher axle loads, environmental condition and construction errors

PDF Warm-Mix Asphalt Study: First-Level Analysis of Phase 2

asphalt concrete will influence performance of the mix. The first two phases of the study compared the performance of a control mix, produced and constructed at conventional hot-mix asphalt temperatures, with three warm-mixes, produced and compacted at temperatures approximately 35°C (60°F) lower than the control.

Open Graded Mixes - McAsphalt - McAsphalt - THE RIGHT MIX

An open graded cold mix is a coarse aggregate mix (very small amount of fine aggregate) with a large amount of air voids to allow for water to drain. These mixes can be used as a base or surface course and show excellent resistance to fatigue, reflection cracking, rutting, and shoving. Open graded mixes are useful for restoration or new


Rutting of hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavements at intersections is a common problem. Although the problem exists in both cold and hot climates, it is more common and serious in hot climates. Rutting takes place at intersections because the HMA exhibits low stiffness under slow moving or

PDF Superpave Level One Mix Design

The mix design effort showed that it was difficult to achieve the Superpave volumetric requirements of voids in mineral aggregate (VMA) and voids filled with asphalt at 4 percent air voids for a 12.5-mm maximum aggregate size, regardless of whether the gradation was coarse or fine.
