Abstract: During the maintenance or the construction of asphalt pavement the utilization of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) can diminish the cost of the project, time consumption, conservation of natural resources and most importantly no harm to the environment. In this paper we are going to study the performance of pavement containing RAP (20%, 30%, 40% and 50% excluding the RAP aggregates of size 20 mm), anti-stripping agent Zycotherm, 1% of virgin bitumen contain are replaced by bitumen attached on RAP aggregates after the screening process. Tests performed for conventional and modified pavement sample are Marshall Stability and flow. Test for virgin aggregates and RAP aggregates are impact test, crushing test, shape test, specific gravity and bitumen extraction test. Test for virgin bitumen and modified bitumen are softening and penetration test.
Index Terms: Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP), Virgin Bitumen, Zycotherm, RAP Aggregates.
