INFLUENCE OF ASPHALT TEMPERATURE SUSCEPTIBILITY ON PAVEMENT CONSTRUCTION AND PERFORMANCE.
The overall objectives of the NCHRP Project 1-20 research study were: (1) to determine the range or extent of variability in temperature susceptibility of asphalt cements currently being used in road construction, (2) to evaluate the effects of asphalt cement properties on pavement construction operations and short-term performance of pavements over the full range of service temperatures, (3) to identify the limits of variability in asphalt cement properties that can be accommodated through application of known mixture design techniques, and (4) to determine procedures for accommodating or controlling that variability in temperature susceptibility of asphalt cements that cannot be accommodated by known asphalt technology. The findings of this research are presented in this report.
