Effects of Mixture and Aggregate Type on Over-Compaction in Hot Mix Asphalt in Tennessee

Correct compaction is vital for asphalt mixture service life. An adequately compacted mixture with inferior properties can achieve better performance than a mixture with excellent properties but

Characterization of aggregate interlocking in hot mix asphalt by mechanistic performance tests

The interlocking of aggregate is critical during compaction. Nevertheless, few mix design specifications include any specific requirements for locking points, mainly because it is difficult to

Influence of aggregates angularity on the locking point of asphalt mixtures

Aggregate angularity plays a critical role in the performance of asphalt mixtures. Current asphalt mix design methods do not specify compaction effort according to aggregate angularity or locking

Laboratory Compaction Study and Mechanical Performance Assessment of Half-Warm Mix Recycled Asphalt Mixtures Containing 100% RAP

The HWMRA mixtures with 100% RAP and emulsified bitumen exhibited proper volumetric and mechanical behavior in terms of moisture damage, ITS, stiffness modulus, rutting, and fatigue cracking, and encourage greater confidence in promoting the use of these sustainable asphalt mixes for their use in road pavements or urban streets.

Influence of the Compaction Method in the Volumetric Design of Cold Recycled Mixtures with Emulsion

Evaluated two compaction methods used to design cold recycled mixtures with emulsion: the modified Proctor procedure and the gyratory compaction, it was concluded that both methods could be useful to study compactability.

Experimental Investigation into the Impact of Compaction Energy Level on Thickness of Flexible Pavement

As a means of gaining a better understanding of the impact of compaction energy levels on the thickness of flexible pavements, this study investigated samples that were 50% thicker than the standard

SmartRock-Based Research on Gyratory Locking Point for Stone Mastic Asphalt Mixture

For gyratory compaction, the concept of the locking point was initially developed to identify the compactability of asphalt mixes and to alleviate potential aggregate crushing in the mold. Most

Comparative Evaluation of Compacting Process for Base Materials using Lab Compaction Methods

Precise characterization of the compactability of aggregates and soils in the laboratory has always been a challenge to pavement technologists. The present study investigated compactability of
