The Performance Analysis of Semi-Flexible Pavement by the Volume Parameter of Matrix Asphalt Mixture
The volume parameter of matrix asphalt mixture is an important target in the design of the semi-flexible pavement. The research used volume-standar to design four kinds of matrix asphalt mixture, fulfilled mechanics performances and performances of semi-flexible pavement material with different aging, compared with common asphalt mixture and researched the effect by air void and pore structure. It proves that the compacted intensity, high-temperature stability and low temperature bend of the semi-flexible pavement material is better than common asphalt pavement material, the performances of matrix asphalt mixture with high air void is better. As for matrix asphalt mixture with same air void but different pore structure, the performances of homogenous grade design is prior to consecutive grade disign.
