The Effects of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) on the Laboratory Performances of Hot Mix Asphalts
The use of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) in flexible pavement surface layer has been a major sensitive issue in the construction industry. Due to limited space available in landfills, the amount of high quality virgin ...
Impact of Lime on the Mechanical Properties of HMA Mixtures in Nevada
The purpose of this research was to evaluate the impact of hydrated lime on the mechanical properties of typical HMA mixtures in Nevada. This research differed from previous studies in several respects. First, because lime ...
Impact Of Anti-Strip Additives On Long-Term Aging Properties Of Asphalt Mixtures
The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of lime and liquid anti-strip additives on the long-term aging properties of asphalt binders and mixtures sampled from five different U.S. locations. The HMA mixtures ...
Environmental Conditions and Binder Aging Characteristics in the Intermountain Region of the United States
Thermal cracking is a major form of distress in much of the northern United States. Moreover, field performance data indicate that HMA mixtures in the intermountain region of the U.S. experience severe thermal cracking ...
Characteristics of Dynamic Triaxial Testing of Asphalt Mixtures
Due to the increasing traffic loads and tire pressures, a serious detrimental impact has occurred on flexible pavements in the form of excessive permanent deformation once the critical combination of loading and environmental ...
