• Effects of Aggregate Gradation and Angularity on VMA and Rutting Resistance 

      Park, Dae-Wook; Chowdhury, Arif; Button, Joe W. (2001-06)
      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 ...
    • Role of Aggregate Characteristics to Load in SMA 

      Gatchalian, Dennis; Masad, Eyad; Chowdhury, Arif; Little, Dallas N. (2006-08)
      Stone matrix asphalt (SMA) mixtures rely on stone-on-stone contacts among particles to resist applied forces and permanent deformation. Aggregates in SMA should resist degradation (fracture and abrasion) under high stresses ...
