Research on Designing Optimum Asphalt Content of Asphalt Mixture by Calculation and Experimental Method
In this paper, the initial asphalt content is estimated by the hot-mixed asphalt mixture rapid calculation method in condition that we have no information about the similar project, and five asphalt content are selected with regarding the estimated asphalt content as the middle value, then carries on the Marshall test. The optimuml asphalt content is very accurate by the calculation and experimental method, the method greatly improved the test efficiency.
