Stockpile an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Six stockpiles of aggregates (19.00, 9.50, 4.75, 2.36, 0.30, and 0.075 mm) were used to produce the base and modified asphalt mixtures, where stockpiles were coarse aggregates and others were fine aggregates. The Superpave uses the nominal maximum aggregate size (NMAS) of the aggregate to categorize mixtures and define graduation requirements.

More asphalt must be added to a mix containing porous aggregates to make up for that which is absorbed by the aggregates and is not available to serve as binder. True Slag, hard limestone, crushed concrete, and other manufactured aggregates can be highly porous, and that will decrease the asphalt cement quantity and cost of a mix.
