Chemical and Compositional Characterization of Recycled Binders

The objective of this project is to evaluate chemical properties of recycled binder such as existing in reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and recycled asphalt shingle (RAS) and their relationship to binder's physical characteristics affecting blending with the virgin binder and performance of mixes during service life. The outcome of the project will support the existing ICT project to determine what levels of RAS an RAP are compatible without affecting performance. The major objective of this project is to explain effects of RAS and RAP-asphalt binder blends based on chemical characterization in the same fashion as these are distinguished by their performance characteristics.
