Virginia Method for the Design of Dense-Graded Emulsion Mixes

Report No: 82-R53

Published in 1982

About the report:

An investigation into the Illinois method for the design of dense-graded emulsion base mixes had resulted in a report offering several modifications to that procedure. The Bituminous Research Advisory Committee then recommended that the Illinois method, along with the recommended modifications, be adopted for use in Virginia. This report was prepared to meet the need for a written document incorporating the modifications into the basic method.
