Expansive Characteristics of Reclaimed Asphalt

Seventeen RAP materials and virgin aggregates were tested for their expansive characteristics in the laboratory following the ASTM D4792 "Potential Expansion of Aggregates from Hydration Reactions" test method. The specimens in California Bearing Ratio (CBR) test molds were submerged into a high alkali cement water solution (pH of 12) and kept always soaked at 70oC to accelerate hydration reactions. The percent expansion amounts of the CBR specimens and the temperature and pH levels of the solution were measured continuously on a daily basis during the soaking period for a minimum of 7 days and maximum 60 days until the expansion curve flattened or the expansion rate slowed down.
