Abstract:
The report presents an evaluation of a modification to an asphalt-debonding test procedure when used with a water debonding apparatus developed at the University of Arizona, the Pore-Water Pressure Debonding Device. The method being modified is that outlined by Jimenez in his report "Testing for Debonding of Asphalt from Aggregates". A regular test specimen, 4 inches in diameter by 2½ inches high, is water-saturated at 122°F and subjected to repeated pore-water pressure varying from 5 to 30 psi. The above factors are kept constant and the following ones are varied: air void content, stress frequency, stress repetition, stress duration and testing temperature. Test results of the modified testing procedure demonstrated the following trend: the higher the value of any of the aforementioned test variables, i.e., the void content, stress frequency, stress repetition, or stress duration, or any combination of these variables, the greater the loss of the mix resistance to stripping.
