Research on Normative Parameters of Asphalt Mixtures Used for the Street Pavements Under the Conditions of Lithuania

Faustina Tuminiene, Alfredas Laurinavicius


Chapter 1 describes the analysis of service conditions of flexible road and street pavement structures in Lithuania and their condition. Chapter 2 describes the asphalt concrete mixtures for road pavement structures and theoretical background for its quality improvement. Chapter 3 presents the experimental research of asphalt mixtures used for laying wearing courses, base courses and foundation layers of pavements. Chapter 4 gives the improvement of the normative parameters of asphalt mixtures and establishment of new limit values.
