In HMA, aggregates are combined with a asphalt binding medium to form a compound material. By weight, aggregate generally accounts for between 92 and 96 percent of HMA and makes up about 25 percent of the cost of an HMA pavement structure. Aggregate is also used by itself or with a stabilizer for base and subbase courses.
Asphalt Pavement Alliance Announces Winners of 2019 Perpetual Pavement Award The Washington State Dept. of Transportation was notified on March 17th, 2020 that has won a 2019 Perpetual Pavement Award from Asphalt Pavement Alliance APA .
Areas of HMA pavement where the portion of aggregate extending above the asphalt binder is either very small or there are no rough or angular aggregate particles. This close-up picture of a road surface shows aggregate wear after about 5 years of wear. Washington generally has high quality aggregate that rarely suffers from excessive polishing.
Pavement Structure “Aggregate base” refers to crushed aggregate. The WSDOT crushed aggregate definitions of “crushed surfacing top course” CSTC and “crushed surfacing base course” CSBC both meet the intended definition of “aggregate base”. The minimum recommended crushed aggregate base thickness is 4 inches. Aggregate layers ...
Asphalt treated base ATB is a dense-graded HMA with a wide gradation band and lower asphalt content intended for use as a stabilizing base course. ATB costs less than typical HMA mixes because it can be produced with less expensive aggregates and lower percentages of asphalt binder.

Aggregate Segregation. Based on several articles Kennedy et. al., 1987 2 ; Brown and Brownfield, 1988 3 ; Williams et. al., 1996a 4 and 1996b 5 ; Khedaywi and White, 1996 6 ; AASHTO, 1997 7 the commonly accepted qualitative definition of aggregate segregation is “the non-uniform distribution of coarse and fine aggregate components within the asphalt mixture.”

Aggregates are the most basic material used in construction. They provide the foundation for roads, bridges, and buildings, while also making up over 90% of an asphalt pavement and up to 80% of a concrete mix. On average, 38,000 tons of aggregates are necessary to construct one lane mile of interstate highway.
The Operational Excellence Awards recognize association member companies for best practices in asphalt operations, safety, community relations, ecological practices, and marketing. The deadline for nominations is December 4, and winners will be honored at the National Asphalt Pavement Association 2016 Midyear Meeting.
A hot mix asphalt HMA , which is typically used for roads and parking lots, is as much as 95 percent asphalt aggregate by weight. The majority of aggregate in the mix is usually coarse, or large in size, followed by crushed stone and gravel. The remaining aggregate is composed of fillers, such as sand.

A flexible pavement structure is typically composed of several layers of material each of which receives the loads from the above layer, spreads them out, then passes them on to the layer below. Thus, the further down in the pavement structure a particular layer is, the less load in terms of force per area it must carry see Figure 1 .
