Use of J Band to Improve the Performance of the HMA Longitudinal Joint

The research team anticipates using field produced cores with and without J-Band (also commonly referred to as void reducing asphalt membrane or VRAM) to evaluate how J-Band improves the performance of asphalt pavement mat at longitudinal joints against deterioration due to water and air infiltration through extensive lab testing of field cores.
