A Review of Protocols Used for Evaluating Defective Asphalt Materials and Pavements

This project will evaluate the current practices and procedures used by the Department to evaluate defective asphalt material. Defective material is defined in Section 334 and 337 of the FDOT Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction. For dense graded mixtures (including dense graded friction courses), material is considered defective if the air voids, density, asphalt binder content, or percent passing the #200 sieve fall outside of the master production ranges defined in Section 334. For open graded friction course mixtures, material is considered defective if the asphalt binder content, percent passing the 3/8-inch sieve, percent passing the #4 sieve, or percent passing the #8 sieve fall outside of the master production ranges defined in Section 337.
