The results indicate that as the AC pavement ages, its modulus decreases due to pavement deterioration. The most prominent cause for AC pavement deterioration was observed to be stripping. Two of the test sections on US-169 and K-4 showed little signs of stripping and had a minimal reduction or even an increase in AC moduli.

Definition of Hot Mix Asphalt Civil Engineering Terms

Oct 02, 2013  Hot mix asphalt (HMA) is “the black stuff” used as a pavement material. Its a combination of aggregate and asphalt binder mixed together at elevated temperatures that forms a hard, strong construction material when cooled to suitable temperatures. Also known as “asphalt concrete” (AC or ACP), “asphalt

Designing Asphalt Pavements for Extreme Climates

States present a unique challenge for hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavements and can lead to accelerated aging of the asphalt binder. Reese and Predoehl observed that the viscosity of the base asphalt may increase by a factor of 40 within 2 to 4 years (1). This aging causes the pavement to embrittle and consequently to fatigue crack (2).
