Measuring the Material Properties of Aggregate Base Containing Recycled Materials - Technical Summary

Principal Investigator:

April 2008

Report no. MnDOT 200725TS

Projects: Resilient Modulus Development of Aggregate Base and Subbase Containing Recycled Bituminous and Concrete for 2002 Design Guide and MnPAVE Pavement Design, Resilient Modulus Strength of Base Course with Recycled Bituminous Material

Topics: Pavement design for cold climates

Researchers performed both field and laboratory measurements of resilient modulus for three reconstructed roads that used recycled asphalt paving material in the pavement base, and also performed modulus, shear strength and deformation tests on reclaimed aggregate base and recycled asphalt mixed at various ratios. This established procedures and generated necessary inputs for MnDOT's pavement design manual. (This is related to research report 2007-05).
