Utilization of Construction and Demolition Debris Under Traffic-Type Loading in Base and Subbase Applications
As construction and remediation take place throughout New Jersey, the amount of construction and demolition debris increases, while the availability of landfill space decreases. A viable solution for
The Development of a Performance Specification for Granular Base and Subbase Material
The research project encompassed evaluating the performance of New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) specified aggregates at the respective NJDOT gradation ranges (high end, middle, and low
Assessment of Workability and Compactability of Warm-Mix Asphalt
One of the main benefits advertised about the use of warm-mix asphalt is the increased workability at conventional and lower compaction temperatures. From a field perspective, “workability” is
Performance characteristics of plant produced high RAP mixtures
The main focus of this study was to obtain plant produced Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) mixtures, to document the mixture production parameters and to evaluate the degree of blending between the
Influence of Production Temperature and Aggregate Moisture Content on the Initial Performance of Warm-Mix Asphalt
The concept and use of warm-mix asphalt (WMA) is becoming more popular in the asphalt industry. The promise of reduced energy consumption, reduced emissions, and a more workable product is appealing
The Use of Recycled Concrete Aggregate in a Dense Graded Aggregate Base Course
The research project was broken up into 2 different parts. The first part involved evaluating the potential use of the Time Domain Reflectometry, TDR (ASTM D6780), as a non-nuclear means for
Exploring low-temperature performance in Black Space
Recently, researchers have made effective use of Black Space diagrams to model stiffness and relaxation changes relating to non-load-associated cracking. A Black Space-based approach to detecting
Backcalculation Method to Determine Effective Asphalt Binder Properties of Recycled Asphalt Pavement Mixtures
State departments of transportation are beginning to require the use of higher percentages of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) in hot-mix asphalt. To help implement higher RAP contents, better
Behavior of Construction and Demolition Debris in Base and Subbase Applications
The design performance of a pavement system is evaluated based on the predicted number of load repetitions it will be subjected to throughout its service life. Mechanistic pavement design predicts
