Abstract

Mineral aggregate constitutes approximately 95% of hot-mix asphalt by weight. Thus it contributes a lot on the characteristic of bituminous mixtures. This study is to determine the effect of different aggregate types and gradation on the characteristics of bituminous mixtures. Granite and limestone are tested for aggregate suitability as highway construction material and each of them were employed to produce two aggregate gradations, which are well-graded and gap-graded. Lab tests were done to determine the characteristics of the bituminous mixtures of each combination. The results were compared with the specifications of the Jabatan Keija Raya (JKR). From the result obtained, both granite and limestone are usable as highway construction material. However, granite is more recommended for highway purpose as it has higher strength and more durable compared to limestone. A well graded mixture is proved to be able to carry and spread load imposed on it better than a gap-graded mixture.
