GUIDELINES FOR RECYCLING PAVEMENT MATERIALS

These guidelines have been developed based on existing literature, personal conversations and correspondence, and a laboratory and field testing program. They are intended to provide to the practicing engineer the following information: 1) Point out the potential advantages of recycling. 2) Assist both in making a preliminary analysis of recycling as a pavement rehabilitation alternative and in identifying a suitable methodology. 3) Provide guidance and criteria for making a detailed analysis of cost, energy, materials design, structural design, construction specifications, and quality control. 4. Recommend a methodology for evaluating project results so that recycling alternatives can be compared with conventional methods of rehabilitation. (Author)
