OGFC, Performance


OGFC’s used by several State Department of Transportation since 1950. Gap -graded aggregates and low percentage of fines is used in OGFC’s Mix. Some of the Department of Transportation reports good in performance and many other states reports is unacceptable performance, using polymer modified binder reporting good performance of OGFC and also coarser aggregate gradation reporting unsatisfactory performance. The purpose of using the OGFC’s to improve friction, preventing hydroplaning effect, to reduce the splash and spray and to reduce the pavement noise levels and improving night visibility. This work is on develop OGFC mix design procedure and evaluation of its performance.
