Evaluation of Superpave Fine Aggregate Angularity Specification
The validity of the Superpave fine aggregate angularity (FAA) requirement is questioned by both the owner agencies and the paving and aggregate industries. The FAA test is based on the assumption that more fractured faces ...
An Experimental Study on the Guidelines for Using Higher Contents of Aggregate Microfines in Portland Cement Concrete
The use of manufactured fine aggregate (MFA) in portland cement concrete becomes more common as sources of natural sands are depleted. There is a great need to utilize MFA better, particularly the minus 75µm sizes. The ...
Effects of Aggregate Gradation and Angularity on VMA and Rutting Resistance
The Superpave system adopted the voids in mineral aggregate (VMA) criteria developed by McLeod using the 75-blow Marshall compactor for conventional dense-graded hot mix asphalt (HMA) mixtures. This VMA criteria is a ...
Evaluation of Superpave Aggregate Specifications
(International Center for Aggregates Research, 2002)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the restricted zone effect using four different aggregates: crushed granite, crushed limestone, crushed river gravel, and a mixture of crushed river gravel as coarse aggregate with ...
