Abstract

Structural and functional performance of a pavement is affected by aggregate properties; therefore, characterizing the aggregate properties is crucial. Series of tests are conducted on road construction aggregates, not only for selection of appropriate aggregate which meets related specifications, but also for estimation of the long-term performance of aggregates particularly for economic and safety reasons. Micro-Deval (MD) test is the most common test used for qualifying aggregates on behalf of resistance to wear.
