1 Performance Tests of Asphalt Mixtures Louay N. Mohammad, Ph.D. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering LA Transportation Research Center Louisiana State University 42 nd Annual Rocky Mountain Asphalt Conference February 25 27, 2015 Denver, Colorado

2 My Story Baxkground Asphalt Mixture Design Review performance Tests High Temperature Intermediate Temperature Mixture Design Volumetric Mechanistic Summary

3 Background Asphalt cement Aggregate Coarse Fine Increased use of Reclaimed Materials RAP / RAS Waste tires Industrial waste

4 Background Practice of utilizing RAP and/or RAS in new asphalt mixtures has increased in recent years economic and environmental benefits RAP has most widely used materials Wearing Course: 15% Binder Course: 20% Base Course: 30% RAS has emerged as a material of interest to the paving community RAP and/or RAS valuable components in asphalt mixtures With increased demand and limited supply of aggregate and binder Potential benefits are high on use high percentages of RAP state agencies have not proceeded to use high percentages of RAP on their roadways non-uniformity of RAP materials agency s lack of confidence in the long term performance data and specifications. problem is further augmented when RAS is used in conjunction with RAP

5 Objectives of Mixture Design Perform permanent deformation fatigue cracking repeated load low temperature cracking moisture induced damage Safety Resist skid Constructable Workability

6 Typical Asphalt Mixture Design Volumetrics Voids in the Total Mix, VTM Voids in the Mineral Aggregate, VMA Voids Filled with Asphalt, VFA Densification Stages during lab compaction process VOLUME air asphalt MASS Total Volume aggregat e aggregate Total Mass

7 Current Volumetric mix design Ensure satisfactory performance strict material specifications requirement volumetric mix criteria No mechanical proof test Marshall mix design Limited Mechanical tests mix verification intermediate and high volume traffic Superpave Shear Tester (SST) Not widely used

13 Selection of Mechanical Tests Laboratory Tests Pavement Performance High Temperature Permanent deformation Intermediate Temperature Fracture/Fatigue Low Temperature Low temp cracking Features to be considered Measure/relate to fundamental properties Simple, repeatable, easily calibrated, quick, not requiring highly trained personnel, Can utilize low cost equipment. Sensitive to subtle changes in mixture properties

14 Laboratory Performance Tests

15 Louisiana Balanced Asphalt Mixture Design High temperature Performance Loaded Wheel Tracking Test Relation to F N Rutting Intermediate temperature Performance Semi Circular Bend Test Cracking Low temperature performance TSRST
