Fatigue and Durability of Recycled Stabilized Base Course

This research project is being conducted by Dr. Khaled Sobhan of New Mexico State University. The project will evaluate the technical performance of a new composite base course made from crushed RCA, cement, high volume coal fly ash, and strips of shredded reclaimed plastics. The primary motivation of this project will be to find innovative reuse of recyclable materials in highway pavements by conducting systematic characterization studies aimed at providing valuable insights into the long-term performance and durability issues of such composites. State departments of transportation and industry are involved.
