COLD RECYCLING OF FAILED FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS WITH CEMENT

Recycling of failed pavements as a means of conserving materials and saving energy and money is examined. Documentation of the use of this method dates back to the 1940s. More recent experience with in-place cold recycling with cement in several states is outlined. Two theoretical pavement projects are used to demonstrate in detail the energy and cost requirements associated with this method of pavement rehabilitation. It is concluded that strengthening the existing pavement material in place by means of cold recycling, with cement as the binder, can produce substantial savings in energy and costs. (Author)
