Abstract:The engineering properties of Emulsion-Aggregate Mixtures (EAM's) are characterized using laboratory and field testing. Dense-graded and open-graded aggregates treated with HFE-300 and CSS-1 emulsions are evaluated. Shear strength, repeated loading response (resilient modulus, permanent deformation), tensile strength, Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) and curing effects are evaluated in the laboratory. In-service EAM pavement evaluation includes distresses, DCP, and non-destructive testing using the Falling Weight Deflectometer. The study concludes that EAM's are adequately characterized as an improved granular material.
