Foamed Asphalt, viscosity, Warm-mix Asphalt
Foamed asphalt is a popular technic of vaporizing water into asphalt binder that falls under the umbrella term of warm-mix asphalt. In order to understand how to adjust mix designs for the use foamed asphalt, methods must be developed for characterizing different foamed asphalt binders. One way to characterize the asphalt binder is through viscosity testing using a rotational viscometer. The standard method of using a viscometer to measure the viscosity of asphalt binder is insufficient when dealing with foamed asphalts, so a new method has been created along with 4 metrics to analyze the data to characterize foamed asphalt binders.
