Abstract:
In this report the influence of several variables including asphalt content, mixing temperature, compaction temperature and compaction energy on void content, voids-in-the-mineral-aggregate (VMA), density and stability of asphaltic concrete mixtures was established. Straight lines were obtained on double logarithmic paper for each asphalt content when the logarithm of Marshall stability values as ordinate were plotted versus the logarithm of the corresponding number of blows of a Marshall compactor as the abscissa. The straight lines were very nearly parallel and therefore, it was possible to develop a single empirical formula expressing the relationship between stability at any compactive effort, within the range of 20 to 110 blows per face, in terms of the standard stability at 75 blows per face of specimen. Results indicate that void content, VMA, density and stability were significantly affected by compaction temperature, asphalt content, compactive effort and mixing temperature.
