Abstract [en]

This paper presents the results from an evaluation of a new gradation-based framework developed for identifying and assessing the coarse aggregate structure of dense-graded mixtures for resistance to rutting. A theoretical packing-based analysis procedure was used to evaluate the coarse aggregate structure for hot mix asphalt mixtures. This procedure was applied to an extensive range of mixtures. A key feature of this new framework is the concept of the existence of a dominant aggregate size range (DASR). The porosity of the DASR is calculated based on an interaction diagram to evaluate the degree of particle-to-particle interaction of coarse aggregates between contiguous sieve sizes. In addition, an interaction diagram-based criteria for dense-graded Superpave mixtures are determined, as well as criteria for the porosity of the DASR. Based on the field and laboratory-based rutting performance of the mixtures evaluated in this paper, it was concluded that DASR along with the porosity of the DASR may provide a framework for evaluating the gradation of dense graded mixtures for their likely rutting potential.
