|Publication Date:||1 August 2008|
|ICS Code (Road construction materials):||93.080.20|
This guide covers the construction of bituminous opengraded friction course plant mixtures. End-use specifications should be adopted to conform to job and user requirements. Where applicable, Specification D3666 should be applied as a minimum for agencies testing and inspecting road and paving materials.
Bituminous open-graded friction courses are placed as the final wearing course for highways and airfields.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
