Project Details

Title:Testing of Field Cores to Determine Performance of Asphalt Mixture Performance Parameter
Principal Investigators:Pedro Romero
University:University of Utah
Grant #:69A3551747108 (FAST Act)
Project #:MPC-640
RH Display ID:154799
Keywords:asphalt mixtures, cores (specimens), cracking, field tests, materials at high or low temperatures, pavement performance


The objective of this research is to obtain field cores and test them to correlate the observed performance of the mixtures to the values obtained in the lab. Knowing the relation between lab tested field cores and field performance will allow for the development of asphalt mixtures optimized for all conditions. At the conclusion of this project, it will be possible to establish cracking parameter to ensure adequate field performance of asphalt mixtures at low and intermediate temperatures.
