Evaluation of the MMLS3 for Accelerated Wearing of Asphalt Pavement Mixtures Containing Carbonate Aggregates
(Virginia Transportation Research Council, 2014-06)
The purpose of this study was to develop an accelerated wearing protocol for assessing the susceptibility of asphalt surface mixtures to polishing. This was the second phase of the study. The first phase focused on assessing ...
Methods for Assessing the Polishing Characteristics of Coarse Aggregates for Use in Pavement Surface Layers
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2010-06-01)
The predominant aggregate resources located in the western parts of Virginia are carbonate rocks. The mineral components of these rocks tend to be relatively soft and subject to abrasive wear under traffic that leads to ...
