Thermodynamics between RAP/RAS and Virgin Aggregates during Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) Production- A Literature Review

The objectives of this project are to: conduct a comprehensive literature review on thermodynamics, with special emphasis on heat transfer phenomena between reclaimed asphalt pavement/recycled asphalt shingles (RAP/RAS) materials with virgin aggregates while moisture is present in the recycle materials; understand and access the hot mix asphalt (HMA) production process specifically in regards to energy use, energy loss, and emission while mixing RAP/RAS with virgin aggregates with the presence of variable amount of moisture; determine the virgin aggregate temperature necessary to produce various blends of RAP, RAS, and RAP/RAS mixture with moisture contents from 0-20%.
