Effect on Pavement Performance of a Subbase Layer Composed by Natural Aggregate and RAP

Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) recycling in pavement engineering can actually be carried out by means of hot recycling and cold recycling. An additional option arises from mixing with natural aggregates to build the sub-base layer. This paper shows the first results of a research activity undertaken on a test track specifically constructed with the aim to analyze the effect on pavement performance of a sub-base layer mixture with 50% of natural aggregates and 50% of RAP. The investigation is based on Lightweight Deflectometer (LWD) and Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) analysis, comparing results with those obtained on the subsequent section of the test track made by only natural aggregates.
