Post-ageing Characterisation of Sprayed Sealing Binders: A Laboratory Study

This report presents the results of a laboratory study that was conducted as part of the development of a new-long term ageing (durability) test for bituminous binders used in sprayed seals in Australia.

Among the number of test methods reviewed and…

Cemented Materials Characterisation: Final Report
This report brings together five years of research into the modulus, strength fatigue characteristics of cement treated granular materials as used in road pavements. Laboratory procedures used to prepare, cure and test materials for flexural modulus,…
Framework for the Revision of Austroads Design Procedures for Pavements Containing Cemented Materials

The laboratory characterisation of cemented materials for road pavements was completed in Austroads Project TT1359 Cost-Effective Structural Treatments for Rural Highwaysand more recently in Austroads Project TT1664 Cemented Materials…

Characterisation and Performance Evaluation of Granular Bases Project: Pavement Construction Report

A new rut resistance approach based on the wheel-tracking test for unbound granular materials has been developed. The objective of the Austroads project TT1819 is to validate the wheel-tracker laboratory approach against large-scale Accelerated…

Austroads LTPP and LTPPM Study - Summary Report 2012-13

This report summarises the activities undertaken during the 2012–13 year for a long term Austroads pavement monitoring project.

Austroads project AT1064 Long-Term Performance Monitoring to Develop Consistent Performance Models was originally…

Austroads Asphalt Deformation Trial: Dandenong Road

This report documents an asphalt deformation trial established over a 1200 m length of Dandenong Road in Melbourne. The trial aimed to validate the wheel tracking used in the Austroads mix design method. The trial involved the placement of seven…

Polymer Modified Binders and Multigrade Bitumens
This Pavement Work Tip provides a handy summary of the Austroads AP-T235-13 Guide to the Selection and use of Polymer Modified Binders and Multigrade Bitumens.
Literature Review of the Adhesion Mechanisms in Emulsion Seals

There has been renewed interest in emulsion seals in Australia, but an impediment to their widespread adoption has been perceived as adhesion problems. This study looks at adhesion test procedures and means of improving emulsion seal performance.…

Towards Incorporating Heavy Vehicles into the Austroads Sprayed Seal Design Method

There has been a continual increase in the number of large heavy vehicles nationwide since the review of the Austroads sprayed seal design method in 2001. This report aims to refine the traffic adjustment factor by updating and reanalysing the…

Interim Road Deterioration Cracking Model during Accelerated Deterioration

This report documents the process of assembling and reviewing the RMS NSW cracking data and the analysis of this data and its associated variables of climate, traffic load and pavement strength which has led to the development of a potential road…
