Loose mix from A.E. Stone, Inc. in Egg Harbor Township, NJ, was supplied to the Rutgers Asphalt Pavement Laboratory (RAPL) for evaluation. Three different plant mixes were supplied for permanent deformation (rutting) and flexural fatigue testing; 1) A.E. Stone ¼” Mix, 2) I-4 HD, and 3) I-5 HD. To evaluate the rutting resistance properties of the different HMA mixes, the samples were tested in the Asphalt Pavement Analyzer (APA). Meanwhile, to compare the fatigue properties the different HMA mixes, the Flexural Fatigue Device (FFD) was used. A brief description of each the testing devices are provided below.
