Using Surface Energy Measurements to Select Materials for Asphalt Pavements

The objective of this study is to develop and conduct limited validation of surface energy measurement methodology for characterization of aggregates, asphalt binders, and additives. The expectation is that this methodology will ultimately be used as a tool for routine screening and selection of materials for optimum performance of asphalt pavements.
