The purpose of this manual is to familiarize industry and students with the technology of asphalt in its several forms namely asphalt cement, cutback asphalt, and asphalt emulsions. The laboratory work is designed to develop an understanding of asphalt properties, characteristics, testing procedures, and specifications. The procedures outlined are all derived from ASTM designations and practice as recommended by the Asphalt Institute. Where the particular ASTM method permits alternate procedures, the one more applicable to the available equipment and the teaching situation was chosen. The manual consists of the following: ò 35 of the frequently used ASTM tests in Asphalt Binder and Mix Design. ò Sample computations and easy to use data sheets, most of which have been developed specifically for the manual. ò An up-to-date overview of Asphalt Technology including sources, historical development, and classifications of asphalt products. ò Easy to understand explanations for Voids Mineral Aggregate, Absorbed Asphalt, Effective Asphalt Content, Percent Air Voids, and Percent of Voids filled with Asphalt. ò A stand-alone asphalt manual, written specifically for university laboratory instruction, yet applicable for a commercial testing laboratory. Rarely will other reference materials need to be referred to. ò Dimensions in both the SI and the US Standard systems of measurement. ò An appendix with conversion factors, rules of safety and procedures, overview of SHRP SUPERPAVE, explanation of asphalt emulsions, and additional data sheets on single-sided pages.

This college textbook is unique in that it was underwritten by an Education Foundation supported by practitioners of the Asphalt Industry. The text was compiled & written by the staff of the National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT), located on the campus of Auburn University, Auburn, Alabama. The textbook was written to serve as a primary reference for Civil Engineering & Construction Management courses having to do with pavement materials, pavement design, & pavement management. It is also an excellent supplemental text for Engineering courses on construction materials. The textbook serves as the foundation for the Professor Training Program run by NCAT. The 9 chapters cover the life cycle of asphalt cement from the refinery to the production of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) pavements. Included is a chapter on aggregates, Mix designs, production & placement equipment, testing, specifications, quality assurance & recycling. Latter chapters discuss how pavement performance is measured & contains an overview of maintenance & rehabilitation practices. Order direct from The National Asphalt Pavement Association.

Asphalt is a complex but popular civil engineering material. Design engineers must understand these complexities in order to optimize its use. Whether or not it is used to pave a busy highway, waterproof a rooftop or smooth out an airport runway, Asphalt Materials Science and Technology acquaints engineers with the issues and technologies surrounding the proper selection and uses of asphalts. With this book in hand, researchers and engineering will find a valuable guide to the production, use and environmental aspect of asphalt. Covers the Nomenclature and Terminology for Asphalt including: Performance Graded (PG) Binders, Asphalt Cement (AC), Asphalt-Rubber (A-R) Binder, Asphalt Emulsion and Cutback Asphalt Includes Material Selection Considerations, Testing, and applications Biodegradation of Asphalt and environmental aspects of asphalt use

Asphalt Mix Design and Construction: Past, Present, and Future is a special publication focusing on the history, development, trends, and evolution of hot mix asphalt (HMA) design and pavement construction. This committee report contains four papers that were presented at a special technical session, "Evaluation of Bituminous Materials Mix-Design & Superpave," of the Conference to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of ASCE in Washington, D.C. on November 3, 2002. These papers discuss bituminous materials in mix-design, the future of asphalt pavements, modified asphalt binders, and quality control and assurance. This report offers a historical perspective into the field of asphalt design and construction. It will benefit consulting engineers, contractors, government officials and engineers at various levels, and university students, educators, and researchers.
