Development and Evaluation of Porous Pavement Surface Mixtures with Biobased Epoxy Asphalt Binder

Porous asphalt mixtures have multiple beneficial functions when used on pavement surfaces, but their durability is typically low. This research project intends to improve the durability of porous asphalt mixtures with biobased epoxy asphalt binder (BEAB) by conducting the following work: (1) evaluating the performance of porous asphalt modified with the BEAB developed by P.I. Dr. Lu with multiple performance measures in the laboratory; (2) investigating the relationship between material variables and mixture performance for porous asphalt mixtures; (3) optimizing the design of porous asphalt mixture with BEAB for improved pavement performance.
