Evaluation of Non-SBS Modified Binders using the Multiple Stress Creep Recovery Test

The objectives of this research are to characterize the elastic response of Non-Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) modified binders used in the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD) asphalt mixtures using the Multiple Stress Creep Recovery (MSCR); to continue collecting Force Ductility with DSR phase angle or MSCR recover criteria; and to perform cost-benefit analysis to display the benefits of switching from the PG Plus test to the MSCR.
