Modeling Marshall Stability and Flow for Hot Mix Asphalt Using Artificial Intelligence Techniques

Abstract: Marshall Mix design method is one of the common methods that are used in several countries to design

hot mix asphalt. Two of the main design parameters that are considered in this method are Marshall stability and

Marshall flow. These parameters depend on several factors including aggregate gradation and asphalt cement

content. Mix stability and flow are measured in the laboratory by applying a constant rate of deformation

diametrically on a cylindrical specimen of asphalt mix. In recent years, artificial intelligence techniques such as

neural networks (ANNs) and Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) have been utilized in many civil

engineering tasks as an alternative to traditional prediction approaches and have shown a good degree of success.

The main objective of this study is to use Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System to develop models that can

predict the asphalt mix stability and flow as a function of mix gradation and asphalt cement content. An

experimental investigation was carried out to provide the database containing the data required for models

development. These data were then used to develop ANFIS models. These models were developed through using the

Gaussian membership function. The output results indicated that ANFIS models can be used effectively to predict

Marshall stability and flow.
