uniformity of asphalt concrete plant production

Uniformity of Asphalt Concrete Plant Production

The average gradation from each plant was used as a base from which to compute uniformity. The differences between average gradations and individual sample gradations were analyzed statistically to obtain an indication of the uniformity of asphalt concrete production on a statewide basis. From this study it was concluded that: 1.

Uniformity encompasses uniformity of materials, uniformity of material proportioning, and continuous, uniform operation of all plant components. Changes in material characteristics, proportions, and intermittent stops and starts in plant operations make producing an asphalt mixture meeting Specifications extremely difficult.

Asphalt Concrete - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Asphalt concrete that is removed from a pavement is usually stockpiled for later use as aggregate for new hot mix asphalt at an asphalt plant. This reclaimed material (reclaimed asphalt pavement) is crushed to a consistent gradation and added to the hot mix asphalt production process.
