ASPHALT EXPERT SYSTEM ®© FAQ:
What Is RATIONAL ASPHALT TECHNOLOGY ®©?
RATIONAL ASPHALT TECHNOLOGY ®© Is Advanced Rational/LOGIC Applied In
Design, Testing, and Performance Evaluation of Asphalt Materials (aggregates, binders, modifiers and mixtures)
To Prevent Or Anticipate Long-Term Pavement Distress/Damage And
To Optimize Asphalt Mixtures For The Specific Applications And Environments.
RATIONAL ASPHALT TECHNOLOGY ®© is a result of twenty years of world-class asphalt research and globally validated practice.
RATIONAL ASPHALT TECHNOLOGY ®© has very advanced understanding of the relationship between highway/road/runway performance
and the nature of the asphalt used in the pavement.
The fact is that PERFORMANCE of Any Asphalt Mixture depends on its FUNCTIONAL CONSTITUENTS
in relation to the specific combination of ‘outside’ factors.
In other words, a designed HMA must fit the specific ’outside’ requirements in any, including ’critical’, scenario development.
A. The Technology Has The Unique Capacity To Generate OPTIMUM SOLUTION or TO SELECT LEVEL OF SOLUTION, Almost In Any Given Situation.
B. It Delivers Valid QCQA & Performance Based Criteria
C. Those Criteria Are Derivations From The Asphalt Laws - Laws That Govern Physical Behavior Of Asphalt Material and Its Functional Constituents.
D. Such ’All-Inclusive’ Control Paves The Way For Optimum Product Quality And Cost Efficiency.
E. ASPHALT EXPERT SYSTEM ®© Knowledge Base Consists Of Valid Rules And Data Directly Derived From RATIONAL ASPHALT TECHNOLOGY ®©.
The RATIONAL ASPHALT TECHNOLOGY ®© is a system of highly organized, verified knowledge,
mostly substantiated in mathematical and logical algorithms that relate HMA functional elements
to the ALL RELEVANT influential parameters providing the reliable solutions
for any given, including CRITICAL 'SCENARIO', DEVELOPMENT
It Allows A User To Rationally Predict Developments And Play With Various Options Always Knowing What Is Going To Transpire.
Fabric of RATIONAL ASPHALT TECHNOLOGY ®© is made of the following LAWS:
· The Law of Skeletal 'Packing',
· The Law of Compaction,
· The Low of Re-granulation,
· The Law of Porosity,
· The Law of Inter-granular Binder Distribution,
· The Law of Plastic Deformation,
· The Law of ‘Spatial Disturbance’ Within Bituminous Mortar, etc.
USING RATIONAL ASPHALT TECHNOLOGY ®© BRINGS TANGIBLE BENEFITS:
· This Rational Makes Possible a Massive Reduction in Error Cumulating to the Insignificant Margins
· This Rational ’Takes Care’ Of The Energy Transfer To / From The System Parameters (Compaction, T-gradients, Chemical Interactivity, etc.)
· This Rational Expands Use Of Constituents And Modifiers.
· This Technology Covers Every Imaginable Aspect and Issue In The Field – beginning with RATIONAL Selection of Input Material...all the way to Rational Approach to Constructability (Workability & Compactibility).
· It Paves The Way For Valid Verification Status Analyses And The Other Never Seen Before Expertise.
· This Rational Brings SAVINGS replacing mistaken ’rational’ and often incompetence that led to wrong Technical & Business Decisions with OPTIMUM ASSET MANAGMENT
The RATIONAL ASPHALT TECHNOLOGY ®© ‘Built‘ In Asphalt Expert System ®© Is Marvelous Solver And Troubleshooter.
The Bigger Challenge The More You Will Be Pleased With The Outcome.
