Asphalt Concrete is the mixture of fillers, aggregates and bitumen/asphalt. Asphalt concrete is known by different names in different regions. Some of the commonly used names for asphalt concrete are blacktop, pavement, bitumen macadam or rolled asphalt. Asphalt concrete is a type of composite material which is used in construction of surface roads, pathways, airports, parking lots, in the core of embankment dams, railway beds etc. Asphalt concrete could be dense, moderate or open graded depending on its end use application. Asphalt concrete are usually classified into three layer categories. Asphalt concrete is used as base and binding layers to improve load bearing capacity. Asphalt concrete is durable and versatile material which is available in variety of mixes for variety of applications. Asphalt concrete can be recycled and it can withstand extreme climatic changes. Asphalt concrete gives a uniform finish along with high load bearing capacity which makes it popular in heavy construction industry. Asphalt concrete is IS EN 13108 and NRA specified for road works. Open graded asphalt concrete is used in the construction of playgrounds, footpaths and other sports facilities where water on the surface is to be drained via drainage system beneath the structure. Asphalt concrete can be modified with the help of certain polymers to increase its durability, thermal resistance along with other properties. Asphalt the major component of asphalt concrete is residue obtained during petroleum or crude oil distillation. Due to changing oil refining process and increasing oil prices is affecting the asphalt production. In certain regions there are regulations being imposed on the use of asphalt concretes.
