Mix Type Selection
What do you need to consider when selecting an asphalt mixture for a given application in a pavement? How do you determine the appropriate lift thickness for the mix being compacted? What are the characteristics of and uses for dense-graded asphalt mixtures, permeable friction course mixtures, stone matrix asphalt mixtures, thin overlay mixtures, and thin bonded permeable friction course mixtures? We will answer all of these questions and show you an example of mix type selection as applied in design.
