Increasing recycled materials content in asphalt mixtures has numerous economic and environmental benefits, but ensuring good performance has always been a challenge. That’s because stiff, brittle, heavily aged materials can result in premature cracking. This synthesis project sets the course for revising TxDOT’s Standard and/or Special Specifications to recognize this challenge.
The TTI video production group worked with the research team to produce a video summary report on the synthesis for quantification of binder availability in recycled materials project. The video may be viewed below.
