According to the SuperPave, which of the following is NOT the purpose of controlling the clay content of asphalt mix? (a) To reduce binder content (b) To increase binder-aggregate adhesion (c) To promote dense packing (d) To decrease permeability of the mix Solution If clay content is too high, clay could adhere to the aggregate over the asphalt binder. It will lead to a poor aggregate-asphalt binder bonding and possible stripping. Hence the clay content is to be controlled properly. so according to superpave, the reason for which the clay content is NOT controlled is he first option, where binder conent is to be reduced. Clay is not helpful in any way in reducing the quantity of binder..
