normally constitute from 90 to 95 percent by weight of the total mixture. The asphalt is composed of a Performance Graded (PG) binder or some variation of PG binder, and ordinarily constitutes 5 to 10 percent by weight of the mixture. Ingredients in Asphalt Concrete Performance Graded (PG) Binder (a.k.a. Asphalt Cement)

Comprehensive evaluation of wheel-tracking rutting

Mar 11,  · This study aimed to advance the implementation of the most promising wheel-tracking rutting assessment tests in the newly proposed Balanced Mixed Design (BMD) (or Performance-Engineered Mix Design method [PEMD]). In order to achieve this goal, the study examined the validity of two rutting assessment tests (i.e. Hamburg Wheel Tracking test [HWTT], and Asphalt Pavement

Maximizing pavement life over the years | Asphalt magazine

Three words – balanced mix design. Balanced mix design. In the past, it was easy to design a pavement that would not rut by using hard asphalt in a dry mix, but it would crack and ravel. Conversely, using a lot of soft asphalt would result in a pavement that would never crack, but would rut and flush. The optimum design was somewhere in
