MIX DESIGN AND RESILIENT MODULUS EVALUATION OF SULPHUR-EXTENDED ASPHALT PAVEMENTS
The increased price and questionable availability of asphalt has led to the investigation of alternate binders. One such binder is sulphur. This study has investigated the mix design properties of both the Marshall and Hveem mix designs as well as the resilient modulus values. Various sulphur/asphalt binder ratios were compared to the conventional asphalt pavement. The study has shown that the addition of sulphur can provide a better pavement. (Author)
