
Evaluate the fatigue and low temperature
cracking performance of plant-produced RAP
mixtures

Provide further understanding of the blending
that occurs between RAP and virgin binder in
plant-produced mixtures

Refine fatigue failure criteria for RAP mixtures
used in the Simplified Viscoelastic Continuum
Damage (S-VECD) model


Contractors have volunteered to produce
mixtures at different RAP contents
Mixtures sampled and taken to lab for testing
SGC specimens compacted at time of
production
Data collected on plant operations, raw
material info, placement location & conditions
(field cores if possible)

Analysis of data
 |E*| and |G*| comparisons/blending – AAPT
paper
 Low temperature cracking (binder & mix) – paper
in preparation for this year


RAP impact on measured properties
 Increase in |E*|
 PG high temp grade bump above 20%
 Minimal impact on low temp PG grade

Difference in ABCD and CCT
Lab handling procedures (reheating) impacts
properties
Production parameters (discharge temp, silo
storage time) appear to impact properties
