AbstractLocking point is an important concept in selecting a proper aggregate gradation in the asphalt mixture design. The locking point can be defined as the moment during asphalt mixture compacti... 
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
Assessment of the Selection of Asphalt Binder for Full Cross-Section Asphalt Waterproof Layer in High-Speed Railway Ballastless Track
AbstractIn China, the application of asphalt layers in high-speed railway ballastless tracks has two functions. Asphalt layers can be used as a support layer or a waterproof layer; one of these fun...
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
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
Preparation of Asphalt Concretes by Gyratory Compactor: A Case of Study with Rheological and Mechanical Aspects
For asphalt concrete preparation in laboratory mix-design operations, bitumens are usually mixed with micrometer-sized particles (filler), sand and centimeter-sized crushed stones in a gyratory press
Laboratory Investigation of Compaction Characteristics of Plant Recycled Hot-Mix Asphalt Mixture
In this study, the compaction characteristics of recycled hot-mix asphalt (RHMA) were evaluated using the void content (VV), compaction energy index (CEI), slope of accumulated compaction energy (K),
Effect of contact slip behaviour of particle on compaction characteristics of the asphalt mixture
ABSTRACT To evaluate the contact slip behaviour of particle on compaction characteristics of the asphalt mixture, the relation between contact slip behaviour and compaction characteristic was
