Permeability of Sprayed Seals: Literature Review

This report describes a literature review on the permeability of sprayed seal surfacings. This review work was conducted to explore the permeability limits of sprayed seal surfacings, and to determine the influencing factors which allow seals to…

Effect of Heavy Vehicle Traffic in Sprayed Seal Design

The principal aim of this work was to examine the effect of heavy vehicle loading on sprayed seals, in order to incorporate such loading impacts into the Austroads sprayed seal design method.

The current sprayed seal design method uses an equivalent…

Selection and Design of Initial Treatments for Sprayed Seal Surfacings

This document is an update of the design of initial treatments for sprayed seal surfacing.

The information contained within this document supersedes that found in Austroads AP-T68-06 Update of the Austroads Sprayed Seal Design Method, and replaces…

Review of Australasian and Overseas Specifications and Performance Tests for Bitumen

This report describes a literature review on the bitumen/binder specifications and test methods used in Australasia, USA, Europe and South Africa. The project investigated whether the Australian and New Zealand bitumen specifications are adequately…

Maximising the Use of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement in Asphalt Mix Design: Field Validation
The use of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) in asphalt mixes provides a vital basis for sustainable development. Maximising the re-use of RAP in its highest value application, as new asphalt product, has significant economic and environmental…
Improved Design Procedures for Asphalt Pavements
This report is the final deliverable of a three year Austroads project to improve the design procedures for asphalt pavements. The object of the work in this final year was to validate the proposed improved procedures for the characterisation of…
Austroads LTPP / LTPPM Study - Summary Report 2014-15

This report provides a summary of activities completed during 2014–15 for the Austroads long term pavement performance monitoring project.

Austroads has funded the long-term pavement performance study since late 1994. The project monitors the…

Design and Performance of Foamed Bitumen Stabilised Pavements: Progress Report 3

There is a need to improve the Austroads procedures for mix design and structural design of foamed bitumen stabilised materials. This progress report summarises the mix design test methods drafted to date and those planned for 2015–16 within the…

Seal Design Improvement for Low Volume Roads

The current version of the Austroads sprayed seal design method was published in 2006 and has been in use for the last nine years. During recent times, a number of sprayed sealing practitioners have indicated that the basic voids factor for single/…

Development of a Binder Test to Rank the Low Temperature Cracking Resistance of Polymer Modified Binders

The current Australian polymer modified binder (PMB) specification includes low temperature stiffness tests but does not include a binder test which ranks the resistance of PMBs to low temperature cracking on the road. This study investigated…
