Parameter Revision of the Bailey Method on Gradation Examination
The Bailey method put forward three very significant parameters CA, FAc and FAf, provided an effective way for the asphalt mixture gradation test, and it could evaluate the gradation of asphalt pavement core sample effectively. Based on the analysis of common gradation, the parameters of formula was revised, the application conditions of AC mixture and the parameter range for AC mixture was proposed, that based on the gradation which is standard recommended and the core samples in different pavement conditions. The results proposed theoretical basis for gradation examination correctly with the Bailey method.
