High reclaimed asphalt content mixtures: Design parameters and Performance evaluation
Mukul Rathore, Riga Technical University, Latvia
The Doctoral Thesis focusses on developing new procedures for the design and evaluation of high content reclaimed asphalt mixtures containing rejuvenators and on investigating their long-term mechanical performance and environmental impact. A systematic research was conducted to develop a new procedure for preparation of high reclaimed asphalt content mixtures in laboratory. A stage extraction method was developed as part of this work to extract multiple layers of binder from reclaimed asphalt mixtures. Further, the aspects of pavement design have been integrated into life cycle assessment technique to compute the environmental impacts for high rate of asphalt recycling.
