    Abstract

    A statewide pavement coring and testing program was conducted in South Carolina to determine the extent and severity of asphalt pavement stripping. Information from extensive and intensive coring and testing programs identified causes of stripping so that effective measures could be developed to eliminate or minimize future damage. Stripping frequency was related to the following factors: highway, aggregate source, mix type, cross-section type, traffic group, pavement age, and presence of open-graded friction courses. Stripping was pervasive but of varying severity in all soil provinces. Results of findings from indirect tensile strength tests of pavement core layers and a visual examination are given. Strength retention of moisture-conditioned pavement core layers was measured for specimen cores obtained from the outer wheel path.
