This document presents the continuous effort to develop mechanical tests that can relate to the expected performance of asphalt mixtures once placed in the field. During a previous research project, asphalt mixtures of different compositions were collected from different locations across the state of...

 

Asphalt mixtures were collected from seven field projects and distributed to different laboratories to determine their potential for cracking. Samples were prepared in the lab for testing at two conditions: low, in-service temperatures using the bending beam rheometer device based on AASHTO TP-125 and...

 

A study was conducted in which cores were taken from pavements three years after construction. The flexibility index (FI) of the cores, a parameter that relates to intermediate temperature cracking, was measured in the lab and compared to the known values of the same material obtained during constructions....

 

Moisture-induced damage (stripping) is a major distress in asphalt pavements. This study was undertaken to evaluate the effects of chemical Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA) additives, Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP), Anti-Stripping Agent (ASA), and hydrated lime on moisture-induced damage potential of asphalt...

 

Field samples were obtained from cores taken from multiple roads around the Salt Lake Valley in Utah and prepared for BBR testing. The response of field cores showed that even though the same binder grade used in the region was the same, the resulting mixtures have significant differences in creep moduli...

 

Coal ash is the portion of ash rejected by the stack and collected at the base as a waste product. Coal ash is comprised of bottom ash and fly ash. Fly ash accounts for 70 percent to 80 percent of total coal ash and the rest being bottom ash. Only 39 percent of bottom ash is utilized with the rest being...

 

The main objective of this study was to investigate the effect of the addition of a coal combustion remnant called bottom ash into asphalt mixes. The intent was to determine if mixes prepared with bottom ash showed degradation of desirable performance measures when compared to control mixes. This was...

 

This research investigates moisture susceptibility of asphalt mixes; evaluates the effect of various numbers of freeze-thaw cycles on the mechanical properties of asphalt and determines if the Georgia Loaded Wheel Tester can be used to test for moisture induced damage.

 

This project used field and laboratory evaluations to study the possibility of incorporating bottom ash in asphalt mixes. A pavement test section was constructed for the field portion of the project. The laboratory evaluations involved design and accelerated testing of control and bottom ash asphalt...

 

In this study, the researchers evaluated the performance of asphalt mixes prepared using the Marshall mix design method and the Superpave level one mix design method. The Georgia Loaded Wheel Tester and the Thermal Stress Restrained Specimen Tester were used to test the rut-resistance and low-temperature...
