22-2 BMD Round Robin

Project Dates: July 1, 2022 - December 31, 2023

Project Description: 
Asphalt pavement rutting is a serious issue for safety and longevity of pavements. However, SUPERPAVE testing implemented by a majority of states has permitted cracking and raveling to become primary distresses effecting the longevity of pavements. Recently, several different tests have become preferred options due to their correlation to field performance, ease of specimen fabrication, repeatability, and cost to implement. This project will work with other DOTs in an inter-Laboratory study to perform characterization testing and provide recommendations for the Bituminous Concrete Mix Design Submittal Policy
