Title Maximising the use of reclaimed asphalt pavement in asphalt mix design
Status Closed-C
Purpose With the increased demand for environmentally friendly asphalt there is increased use of Reclaimed Asphalt Product (RAP) in asphalt mixes. To maximize this use it is important to understand how the aged bitumen in the RAP is contributing to the asphalt to this process. There is currently no practice in Australia for doing this, although it is a required practice in the USA to make allowance for the contribution of aged binder in the asphalt mix design. This then enables the expected life of the asphalt to be achieved.
