An efficient pre-compaction helps in achieving greater density in asphalt mat and maximizes air void
reduction through rollers.
Among features or points technicians note: aggregates, cement paste matrix, crack surfaces, air void
distribution and filling, plus embedded reinforcement.
(iv) The performances, such as resistance to rutting and thermal cracking, moisture susceptibility, and volumetric characteristics, such as air void
, VMA, VCA, VFA, Marshall stability, and flow value of WMA, were evaluated.
The SGC can be used to design mixtures that do not exhibits classic tender mix behaviour and do not densify to dangerously low air void
contents under traffic action.
The thickness and index of refraction of the polymer shell are noted as [epsilon] and [n.sub.2], respectively while the index of refraction of the air void
, noted as [n.sub.1], is set to 1.0.
8 mm maximum aggregate size is commonly used for porous pavements, air void
content of 20-25% and layer thickness of about 40 mm.
The information includes: Performance Grade (PG) of binder, the theoretical maximum specific gravity, bulk specific gravity, asphalt content and the air void
Generally, the guides that use compacted specimens to determine optimum binder contents require the design to balance between the abrasion loss of the mix and binder draindown values while retaining adequate amount of air void
in the mix to provide good permeability.
Special attention should also be emphasized on the air void
level, which should have a lower level to guard against water permeability.
Incorporating 10% air void
volume into a coating with 20 vol% [TiO.sub.2] reduces the average refractive index of the coating from 1.82 to 1.76.
