SHRP Program: Asphalt Durability and Specification

by Ian L. Jamieson, SHRP, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Serviceability and Durability of Construction Materials


The goals of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) program are an improved specification for asphalt binders and accelerated performance tests that can be employed by user agencies in an asphalt-aggregate mixture analysis system. Contracts A-003A and A-003B, 'asphalt-aggregate interactions' will achieve these goals by relating the fundamental characteristics of asphalt cements to their performance in pavements. The paper reviews new test procedures and knowledge of asphalt materials that are likely to result. Iterim SHRP reports are referenced.
