Suggest 1 possible wiki link and 1 possible backlink for Asphalt.[edit]

An automated Wikipedia link suggester has some possible wiki link suggestions for the Asphalt article:

  • Can link organic matter: ...al material produced by the [[destructive distillation]] of organic matter. Both tars and asphalts are classified as [[bitumen]]s, a ...

Additionally, there are some other articles which may be able to linked to this one (also known as "backlinks"):

  • In Pat Metheny, can backlink ASPHALT: ...ida Greeting Song, Legend Of The Fountain, See Song * BLUE ASPHALT / PAT METHENY GROUP (Lobster CD003) Pat Metheny(g) Lyle May...

Ashfelt[edit]

The term ashfelt redirects here, but is not mentioned in the article at all. My understanding is that it is somewhat of a UK synonym for asphalt and seemed to be commonly used there. If anyone is familiar with the term and could add to the lede (perhaps) and the etymology section, that would be helpful. dhollm (talk) 02:54, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

It's a misspelling based upon a variant pronunciation common in some dialects/variations of English, particularly in the British Isles. Carter (talk) 12:58, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Noise reduicing asphalt[edit]

May I suggest noise reduction asphalt to be added?
Several new streets where I live use this kind of asphalt and I was hoping to find something here.
I searched around and found this article that shows different texture and layer stuctures used to reduice noise:
"Road surfaces influence the generation of noise by tyre/road interaction and the propagation of noise from the vehicle engine and transmission system. The relevant factors for noise emission are the texture of the surface, the texture pattern and the degree of porosity of the surface structure." Low-noise road surfaces - silence-ip.org
But the asphalt I was searching for is called, in french: "Asphalte Phonoabsorbant" (phonoabsorbant asphalt?). It seems to be a mixure using rubber (old tires?) which gives a more smooth surface.
