Laboratory Investigate of the Effect of Fine Aggregates on Asphalt Mixture Materials
The objective of this study is to investigate and evaluate the effect of fine aggregates (aggregate size smaller than or equal to 2.36 mm) on the compressive strength and creep behavior of asphalt mixtures. The variables that are considered in the study include the sizes and gradations of fine aggregate. A kind of standant aggregate gradation and four kinds of reduced aggregate gradation mixture specimens are used. Uniaxial compression and static creep tests were realized at different loading conditions. The test results showed that the different fine aggregate sizes do not result in significant differences in compressive strength and creep values using the same percentage of fine aggregates (38.4%). Only the different gradations showed a little differences for mixtures made with different gradations but same aggregate size (between 2.36 and 1.18 mm).
