  5. 5. 5 Key Factors of Building Good Asphalt Pavement If anyone wants to build good pavement, you should consider the following four key factors. Material Selection Mix Design Production Construction High quality and consistent materials should be selected based on the standard specification. Bitumen & Aggregate Paving and compacting process should be proceed with proper temperature. Mixing and producing temperatures should be controlled accurately at asphalt plant. Design Aggregate Structure Design Binder Content Laboratory mix design and performance tests should be conducted at well equipped laboratory.

  32. 32. 32 Conclusions 1. Early distresses, such as cracks and rutting, have occurred from Mongolian pavements due to heavy traffic, severe weather condition and inappropriate quality control of paving construction. 2. Polymer-modified warm-mix asphalt(PWMA) is selected to enhance rutting and crack resistances at high and low temperatures. 3. Polymer-modified warm-mix asphalt(PWMA) is selected to reduce the mixing and compacting temperatures and to provide better compaction on the road and ability to haul paving mix for longer distances. 4. The PWMA field trials were successfully completed in South Gobi road and Ulaanbaatar road. 5. Field experiences confirmed that PWMA is effective to produce and compact asphalt mixture at temperature of 20°C lower than conventional PMA mixture. 6. Long-term performance and durability of PWMA pavements should be monitored and researched further.
