STANDARD PRACTICE MANUAL FOR FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS
|Publication Date:||15 May 2001|
This manual prescribes materials, mix design procedures, and construction practices for flexible pavements.
This manual provides guidance for the preparation of drawings and specifications for road and airfield flexible pavements using asphalt cement materials. The term "asphalt" is used herein instead of bituminous (a generic term for both asphalt and tar materials) because this is the material most widely used in pavement construction. In current practice tar or coal-tar is used only in instances where fuel resistance is required. This manual also provides useful information for design engineers, laboratory personnel, and project managers concerning mix design, materials, production, and placement of the various asphalt mixtures.
