mixture

 [miks´chur]
a combination of different drugs or ingredients, as a fluid with other fluids or solids, or of a solid with a liquid.

mix·ture

(miks'chŭr),
1. A mutual incorporation of two or more substances, without chemical union, the physical characteristics of each of the components being retained. A mechanical mixture is a mixture of particles or masses distinguishable as such under the microscope or in other ways; a physical mixture is a more intimate mixture of molecules, as in the case of gases and many solutions.
2. In chemistry, a mingling together of two or more substances without the occurrence of a reaction by which they would lose their individual properties, that is, without permanent gain or loss of electrons.
3. In pharmacy, a preparation, consisting of a liquid holding an insoluble medicinal substance in suspension by means of acacia, sugar, or some other viscid material.
[L. mixtura or mistura]

From the optimum compaction parameters obtained under Normal and Intermediate Proctor energies for the 60f-40c mixture, specimens were produced at the optimum moisture content ([W.sub.op]) and maximum dry unit weight ([[gamma].sub.dmax]), by means of static compression, with average dimensions of 5 cm diameter and 10 cm height, which were used in the Unconfined Compression Tests.
Soil specimens were made in cylindrical molds with no lateral confinement, under Normal and Intermediate Proctor energies, for the CBR tests, using the 60f-40c mixture with and without the addition of cement.

It can be also concluded from Table 4 that the required shear displacement to obtain the residual shear strength of mixture increases with increasing the [C.sub.STC] value.
The Superpave mix design was conducted to determine the optimal asphalt content for asphalt mixtures. We have decided that the mix design for a KS mixture can be applied to other mixture designs because the quantity of the tested asphalt binder is limited and our objective is to compare the performances of them with each other.
