Improving Quality Control of Asphalt Pavement with RAP using a Portable Infrared Spectroscopy Device

This project will establish the effectiveness of a Portable Infrared Spectrometer (PIRS) device in measuring percent of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) in a new asphalt mixture immediately after production. The research will provide information and recommendations necessary for Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) to make decisions regarding the use of PIRS for estimating RAP on future ITD paving projects. This would include providing information on the acquisition and operating costs for PIRS and recommended field Quality Control procedures.
