This report provides an insight into the content of the project and its significance, namely `A study of porosity and permeability in bituminous mixtures'. The study is divided into two (2) elements which cover the porosity and permeability of a bituminous mixture. Both elements focus on different bituminous mixtures by varying the types of aggregates and gradations. The types of aggregates used are crushed granite and crushed limestone; and each of them was employed to produce two aggregate gradations, which are well-graded and gap-graded. There is strong evidence from this investigation that porosity and permeability plays an important factor in determining the performance of the bituminous mixture. A number of tests have been conducted to characterize the material used relating to this study and the results were compared with the specifications of the Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR). Parallel to the investigation on the amount of porosity and permeability characteristics of the mixtures, the study was further continued to analyze the performance of the bituminous mixtures. Performance tests relating to deformation (rutting) and fatigue (cracking) were conducted. There is reason to believe that granite with gap-graded gradation is a better highway building material as it performed better in terms of rutting and fatigue cracking. All the observations and results gathered were discussed in this report
