Height and diameter expansion was measured with a digital caliper at the following time intervals: immediately after compaction, 1, 3 and 8 h after compaction as well as prior to the tensile strength test by diametral compression.
After 15 minutes two diametral measurements of the specimen were taken (one across the major diameter and one across the minor diameter of the disc).
O penultimo artigo dessa edicao "Estudo da Utilizacao da Reciclagem de Concreto Asfaltico como Camada de Pavimento", dos autores Rodrigo Andre Klamt, Priscilla Rodrigues Fontoura, Jaelson Budny e Fladimir Fernandes dos Santos, teve como objetivo analisar o desempenho do material fresado misturado com aglomerantes e adicoes minerais quanto a resistencia a tracao por compressao diametral, com o intuito de avaliar a sua aplicacao em camadas de base e sub-base de pavimentos e na busca por solucoes sustentaveis satisfatorias em termos de pavimentacao.
