TRC2102 - Effect of Aggregate-Binder Compatibility on Performance of Asphalt Mixtures in Arkansas

The primary objective of this study is to develop a draft specification including the implementable test protocols that ensure the use of durable and compatible aggregate-binder systems in the mix design phase for enhanced asphalt mixture performance in the field. This study requires the comprehensive laboratory and field investigations that consider multiple factors involved, including a range of aggregate and binder types used in Arkansas. The successful implementation of research findings obtained from TRC2102 will lead to potential cost savings for ARDOT due to increased longevity and constructability, and reduced premature failures for asphalt mixtures placed in the field.
