Class Notes CEE 405 - UIUC Asphalt Materials I – Dr. Hasan Ozer Week 1 (22 – 26 August) REMINDERS:  Review syllabus for course outline and grading criteria  Graduate students must prepare a term paper to obtain 1 extra credit hour TOPICS: Introduction and Asphalt Binder  Asphalt is a dark semi-solid or liquid material compose of a complex mixture of hydrocarbon molecules.  Asphalt has been known to mankind since ancient times, used by its gluing and water sealing characteristics.  Asphalt can be natural occurring (tar pits in Venezuela or California) or refined from crude oil.  Other names for asphalt: binder, tar, wax, pitch, bitumen.  Flexible pavement is made by a skeleton of stone aggregates “glued” together by asphalt.  US Road network has more than 4 million miles of length. 96% of that is surfaced by asphalt pavements. The paving industry is estimated in 30 billion USD.  Types of flexible pavement structures (layer system): o Conventional (local – traditional roads)  3 – 7 in of HMA (Hot Mix Asphalt) over granular base. o Full-Depth (Interstates, high volume roads)  6 – 18 in of HMA in 2 or 3 layers, usually over stabilize subgrade.  Advantages of Flexible pavements: o Lower thicknesses yield lower construction costs. o Lower time to traffic opening. o Higher friction surfaces (i.e. speedways). o Capacity to change surface texture for special purposes (noise, drainage). 1 Class Notes CEE 405 - UIUC  Asphalt Mixture (HMA) Composition o Aggregates (92 – 95% by weight)  Coarse aggregate (greater than N4 mesh)  Fine aggregate (smaller than N4 mesh)  Filler (smaller than N200 mesh), examples: calcium carbonate, lime, fly-ash o Binder (5 – 8% by weight)  Un-modified  Modified (SBS, Elvaloy®, etc.) o Other ingredients/additives (<1% by weight)  Cellulose fibers, anti-stripping agents  Pavement Design vs. Mix Design o Pavement: structure, life cycle, safety aspects. o Mix: materials and blend needed to achieve life requirements.
