  • Sensitivity Analysis of Flexible-Pavement Response and the AASHTO Design Guide to Properties of Unbound Layers. Summary 

    International Center for Aggregates Research (International Center for Aggregates Research, 2005)
    "Unbound granular materials generally compose the base and subbase layers in road pavements. The granular materials distribute the load through aggregate contacts to a level sustainable by the subgrade. Pavement design and ...
  • LASS Incorporates the Third Dimension in Order to Improve the Accuracy of Rapid-Gradation Technology 

    International Center for Aggregates Research (International Center for Aggregates Research, 2004)
    "Sophisticated asphalt designs, such as the Superpave specification, specify aggregate shape parameters like flatness and elongation ratios as an additional design variable. Conventional sieve analysis has drawbacks such ...
  • Structural Characteristics of Unbound Aggregate Bases for Mechanistic Design 

    International Center for Aggregates Research (International Center for Aggregates Research, 2001)
    The next AASHTO Guide for the Design of Pavement Structures will make extensive use of mechanistic-empirical design principles, and may result in pavement designs with different layer thicknesses than are currently common. ...
  • Increased Single-Lift Thicknesses For Unbound Aggregate Base Courses 

    International Center for Aggregates Research (International Center for Aggregates Research, 1998)
    "State departments of transportation (DOTs) have used aggregate base courses for many years as an integral structural component of pavements. Specifications prescribe requirements for placement and compaction of aggregate ...
  • Implication of Aggregates in the Frictional Performance of Seal Coat Overlays 

    International Center for Aggregates Research (International Center for Aggregates Research, 1988)
    To investigate the effect of aggregate type on pavement friction, researchers used Texas as a test model and constructed 59 seal coat test sections 1,000 feet (304 m) long in the four climatic regions of the state. The ...
  • From 12 Months to 3 Months : ICAR Study Yields New Test for Alkali-Silica Reaction that Reduces Time Required 

    International Center for Aggregates Research (International Center for Aggregates Research, 2002)
    ICAR PROJECT 301, "Alkali-Silica Reaction in Portland Cement Concrete," headed by Dr. David W. Fowler at The University of Texas at Austin, succeeded in modifying ASTM C 1293 to yield comparable findings in [three] weeks ...
  • Role of Aggregate Characteristics in Resistance to Load in SMA 

    Gatchalian, Dennis; Masad, Eyad; Chowdhury, Arif; Little, Dallas N. (International Center for Aggregates Research, 2006)
    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 ...
  • Evaluation of Aggregate Characteristics Affecting Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) Response 

    International Center for Aggregates Research (International Center for Aggregates Research, 2004)
    Aggregate shape properties are known to influence asphalt pavement performance. Angularity and texture govern the frictional properties and dilation of the aggregate structure. Aggregate texture plays a major role in ...
  • Evaluation of Superpave Aggregate Specifications 

    International Center for Aggregates Research (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 ...
  • Measuring Workability of High-Fines Concrete 

    International Center for Aggregates Research (International Center for Aggregates Research, 2005)
    "The workability of fresh concrete has traditionally been evaluated with the slump test, which provides an inadequate indication of this important parameter... The need for a better test method for workability is well ...
