Development of Dynamic Asphalt Stripping Machine for Better Prediction of Moisture Damage of Porous Asphalt Pavement in Malaysia

Civil Engineering CE 5990 Graduate Seminar

Thursday, January 26
Time: 4–5 p.m.
Location: Dow 642
Public is welcome

Presenter: Mohd Rosli Bin Mohd Hasan, Ph.D. candidate, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, (Adviser: Dr. Zhaping You).

Abstract: Stripping is a major source of pavement distress and takes place in the presence of moisture. Over the years, many laboratory tests have been proposed to evaluate moisture sensitivity of asphalt mixtures. This seminar will cover the development of a dynamic asphalt stripping machine (DASM) to realistically simulate stripping of porous asphalt mixtures subjected to the dynamic action of flowing water, especially for the Malaysia condition. The topic also covers the background of invention, operational steps and preliminary evaluation on the DASM based on the permeability and indirect tensile strength test results.
