Specifications and Recommendations for Recycled Materials Used as Unbound Base Course

This report provides recommendations and specifications for recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) and recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) that can be used as unbound base course. It is based on research conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and elsewhere and discussions with industry representatives and other professionals. Appendix B includes Practical Approach for Designing Flexible Pavements Using Recycled Roadway Materials as Base Course by Ali Ebrahimi, Brian R. Kootstra, Tuncer B. Edil, and Craig H. Benson. To disseminate the available information about properties, design and construction relating to RAP and RCA, a webinar was organized through the American Society of Civil Engineers. Dr. Jeffrey Melton prepared and presented the webinar, Recycled Base Aggregates in Pavement Applications. The slides used are attached in Appendix C.
