Abstract

Aggregate gradation characterization factors and their relationships to fracture and failure strain of asphalt mixtures were discussed. These factors are used in multiple linear regression analyses. Results showed that the gradation characterization factors relate well to mixture properties and potentially can provide guidance in the selection of aggregate gradations for improved pavement performance.
