Premature failure of pavements due to stripping is a common problem faced by various highway agencies around the country. Researchers have developed various theories to explain the phenomenon of stripping in the asphalt concrete (AC) mixes. Various laboratory test methods have also been developed to identify the moisture susceptible AC mixes. The Environmental Conditioning System (ECS) was developed as a part of the Strategic Highway Research Program to address these deficiencies. A sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
