GEOTEXTILE BEHAVIOUR CONCERN IN ASPHALT RECYCLING, SYRACUSE, NEW YORK, USA

This short article describes trials undertaken to ascertain whether pavements containing geotextiles can be recycled. The objectives of the work were to: a) investigate, using field trials, the relationship between the protective paving geotextile Petromat and pavement recycling; and b) develop recycled bituminous concrete mixture designs using the paving geotextile Petromat incorporated within a bituminous mixture. Brief details of the methods used to install both the Petromat and overlay on a test site, and then to use recycled material from that test section to repave a second test section, are provided. Brief details are also provided of the results of tests on the recycled test section. These included an analysis of pavement cores for: a) gradation of the mineral aggregates; b) bitumen content; c) compaction characteristics; d) field air voids; e) Abson test properties of the asphalt film; and f) bond. The results of a condition survey are also presented. For the covering abstract see IRRD 865821.
