Effects of Rejuvenators on High-RAP Mixtures Based on Laboratory Tests of Asphalt Concrete Mixtures and Fine Aggregate Matrix Mixtures
Date of this Version
Although the linear viscoelastic stiffness, fracture characteristics, and permanent deformation behavior of AC mixtures can be determined through experiments, it is generally time-consuming and expensive to reach statistically repeatable results. Thus, it is attractive to pursue alternative methods that are cheaper, faster, and repeatable in order to efficiently evaluate and predict asphalt mixtures’ core mechanical characteristics (such as stiffness, fatigue, and plastic deformation).
