The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of triaxial strength testing as a simple performance test for evaluating the rut resistance of asphalt concrete mixtures. A total of ten dense-graded asphalt concrete mixtures were tested using standard triaxial strength tests, which involved performing unconfined and confined strength tests on specimens cored from gyratory samples. An abbreviated protocol was also used to characterize the mixtures, which involved direct testing of gyratory… CONTINUE READING
