CE 611 - Asphalt Materials

This course will cover the major types of bituminous materials: asphalt cements, cutback asphalts, asphalt emulsions, and tars. The influence of chemical composition upon physical properties, desirable aggregate characteristics for bituminous mixtures, and asphalt mixtures and construction techniques are also covered. Furthermore, characteristics of constitutive materials, mix design methodology (including current practices for determining optimum asphalt contents), test methods, behavior under various loads, durability, and performance are discussed.
