RECYCLING OF ASPHALT CONCRETE AIRFIELD PAVEMENT. A LABORATORY STUDY

Laboratory experiments have been conducted on aged asphalt concrete (AC) pavement samples obtained from three Naval airfields and two civil airports to develop and establish criteria and design guidelines for recycling such pavements. In these experiments, tests were conducted on nine agents for softening residual asphalt cements and designed hot- and cold-mix samples. It was found that aged AC pavement materials can be recycled to meet FAA and Navy specifications for new pavement surfaces and base courses by hot-mix recycling procedures and new base courses by cold-mix recycling procedures. Based on the results of this investigation, criteria and design guidelines for recycling aged AC pavements by hot-mix and cold-mix procedures have been established. (Author)
