an open-graded base is one that allows water to permeate through it with little resistance. the lack of fines in the open-graded aggregate does not allow for it to
the mix design is based on aggregate voids, air voids and moisture susceptibility. reference documents: d 4791. standard test method for flat particles,
the optimum binder content (obc) of a single aggregate gradation for each method was tested for properties and performance characteristics. the design
a standard concrete pavement in wisconsin stands on a dense graded, aggregate base course. the pavement may be 9 inches or 10 inches thick, and the base
specifications should require the coarse aggregate to be polish resistant and 100 percent crushed material. carbonate aggregates should not be
open- graded friction course is defined as a thin, permeable layer of asphalt that integrates a skeleton of uniform aggregate size with a minimum
open-graded aggregates are common in road and bridge construction the mechanical and drainage properties of graded aggregate base material are the
open-graded aggregates are common in road and bridge construction because they are easy to place, and they have the advantages of very low fine content,
open-graded asphalt mixes are generally characterized by a large percentage of one size of coarse aggregate-usually or 38 inch maximum particle size-little
open graded aggregate in this type of gradation of aggregates, only a small percentage of aggregate particles are in the small range. this results in more
open-graded asphalt friction courses (ogfcs) -- also known as 'popcorn' or the texture of the larger aggregate without fines provides better
definition of open-graded aggregate. mineral aggregate containing very few small particles so that the void spaces are relatively large. ref: shell. click here to

an open graded friction course is defined as a permeable layer of asphalt that integrates a skeleton of uniform aggregate size with a minimum of fines.
if the material is required to be stabilized, check for good coverage of the aggregate with asphalt or portland cement. proper compaction of the
