    The papers in this symposium present information on results of tests conducted primarily to determine stability. Other factors such as density, durability, and flexibility are also covered to some extent. The symposium papers pertain primarily to bituminous paving mixtures for highways and streets, but some phases are applicable to airport pavements. Before taking up the individual papers it is considered advisable to present a statement of general design factors that may serve as a framework for the concepts and data to be presented.
