January 2013-March 2013
• Conducted the asphalt emulsion testing using Dynamic Shear Rheometer
Development of the Loaded Wheel Tracking Test (LWT) for Evaluating Bleeding in Chip Seals and Relationship to Emulsion Residue Rheology August 2012-May 2014
• Developed a test method for evaluating the bleeding using loaded wheel test (LWT) specified in ASTM D6372
• Investigated the relationship between emulsion residue performance as measured by the MSCR test and chip seal bleeding resistance as measured by the LWT to evaluate the influence factors that related to bleeding performance to prevent bleeding in the field.
• Quantified the benefits of emulsion modification to address bleeding resistance through comparison of emulsion residue and chip seal mixture samples prepared with conventional emulsions, and emulsions modified with SBS polymer and SBR Latex.
