  • TOTAL MOISTURE CONTENT OF AGGREGATE BY DRYING

    The moisture content in aggregate is used to determine the binder content for HMA during production of the mixture in a plant. The procedure requires that a known amount of aggregate be obtained, the aggregate heated to remove the moisture, and the percentage of moisture determined.

  • Granular Bases and Subbases

    In a pavement structure, the granular base and subbase are compacted aggregate layers between the asphalt concrete or the Portland cement concrete pavement layers and the underlying subgrade material. The base is the load bearing layer immediately below the pavement layers, and serves to provide strength and support to the overlying pavement.
