CREATING A PERFORMANCE-BASED ASPHALT MIX DESIGN

This research was an effort to create and test a performance-based mix design that allows for oil sand to be incorporated as the binder material. The design is based on creating an open-graded aggregate blend that will allow incorporating the optimum volume of oil sand. The oil sand used in this project is a natural, unmodified material that was

Jun 05, 2015  The steps followed to create this provision were: oil sand characterization, volumetric-mix design, and laboratory testing. The oil sand was characterized by determining the bitumen content, the gradation, and temperature susceptibility. The mix design was created following a procedure similar to the method used to gap-graded hot mix asphalt.

Abstract In this research, the possibility of producing asphalt mixtures containing Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) that perform well from both fatigue and rutting points of view was studied. For this, seven asphalt mixtures with varying RAP percentage and total binder content were produced. All other variables, including the gradation and binder type, were kept constant.
