FUNDAMENTALS OF PERMEABILITY IN ASPHALT MIXTURES

Permeability is an important characteristic of asphalt mixtures. However, there is much confusion regarding the measured value of coefficient of permeability obtained from different sources. It is not uncommon that reported values for similar materials have up to 100 times difference.

mixtures have an influence of lower permeability and lower air voids than smaller NMAS mixtures. Higher Gmm mixtures generally produced mixtures with higher permeability and higher air void values. Although statistically significant, the influence of thickness varied from one method/technology to another.

Laboratory Characterization of Porous Asphalt Mixtures ...

The aggregate gradation design in porous asphalt mixtures requires a lower amount of fine aggregates, which results in high permeability and lower integrity of the structure compared to conventional dense-graded mixtures [1,2].When combined with environmental factors and traffic load, there is an increment in the oxidation of bitumen in the open-graded structure, which results in stiffening of ...

Finally, the requirements of MS, horizontal permeability, and combined horizontal-vertical permeability are recommended for improving the performance of PA mixture. The compaction characteristics of porous asphalt (PA) mixtures are significantly different from those of traditional dense-graded asphalt mixtures.

State of the Art: Permeability of Asphalt Concrete ...

The reviewed test methods for permeability all rely on an assumption of laminar flow that is unlikely in more porous mixtures. Attempts to measure connected air voids improve the chances of obtaining more meaningful correlations between permeability and air voids, regardless of the mathematical model used to link the two quantities.

Performance Enhancement of Permeable Asphalt Mixtures …

Permeability. Permeable asphalt mixtures should have good water resistance and drainage capacity; therefore, it is necessary to measure its permeability coefficient and air voids. The air voids were measured following the technical specification of CJJ/T190 CAU (2012) (Technical Specification for Permeable Asphalt Pavement) (CJJ/T190 CAU, 2012).

the porous asphalt mixtures (Alvarez et al. 2011; Chen et al. 2015). The total air void content can reflect the overall porosity of the porous asphalt mixture, however the permeability can characterize not only the overall porosity but the void connectivity and size which are closely related with the dr ainage function of the mixture. Therefore,
