Accelerated Long-term Ageing Methods for Sprayed Sealing Binders: A Field Validation Study
This report presents the results of a field validation study conducted as part of the development of a new long term ageing test for polymer modified binders used in sprayed seals in Australia. Unaged samples of binders were collected during the…
Performance of Asphalt and Spray Grade PMBs in Sprayed Seals
The Australian polymer modified binder (PMB) specification (AGPT/T190) currently requires different binder grades to be used in sprayed sealing and asphalt applications. This study compared the sprayed seal performance of PMBs representing four AGPT/…
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4D: Stabilised Materials
The use of stabilisation technology for stabilising and recycling materials for pavement construction and maintenance is widely accepted as a cost-effective method of improving long‑term performance and reducing whole-of-life costs of modern,…
Webinar: Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4D: Stabilised Materials
This webinar, presented on 11 April 2019, gives an overview of the key changes to the Guide and the significant advances in the areas of stabilisation or road pavements.
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 2: Pavement Structural Design
Guide to Pavement Technology Part 2: Pavement Structural Design provides advice for the structural design of sealed road pavements. The advice has been generally developed from the approaches followed by the Austroads member agencies. However, as it…
Linked Work Tips Index
This linked index of the Pavement Work Tips is designed to help practitioners easily access the more than 50 publications in the Work Tips collection.
Performance of Asphalt and Spray Grade PMBs in Asphalt Mixes
The Australian polymer modified binder (PMB) specification (AGPT/T190) currently requires different binder grades to be used in sprayed sealing and asphalt applications. This study compared the performance of PMBs representing four AGPT/T190 grades…
Webinar: Appropriate Use of Marginal and Non-standard Materials in Road Construction and Maintenance
This webinar, presented on 17 July 2018, outlines ways to optimise the use of marginal and non-standard materials and gain best value from the successful performance of standard materials. It covers: applying a proposed assessment process to a wider…
Design and Performance of Foamed Bitumen Stabilised Pavements
There is a need to improve the Austroads procedures for mix design and structural design of foamed bitumen stabilised (FBS) materials. This final report summarises the mix design test methods developed within the context of an Austroads mix design…
Appropriate Use of Marginal and Non-standard Materials in Road Construction and Maintenance
This report considers the use of marginal and non-standard materials in road construction and maintenance. It concludes that considerable evidence exists, both nationally and internationally, that supports the wider use of marginal and non-standard…
