Asphalt pavement surface course with recycled rubber

Miroslav Šimun, Sandra Mihalinac

Abstract

After the end of their use in road traffic, car tires can be used in road construction as an addition to bitumen mixtures. By adding recycled rubber, bitumen properties are improved and better behaviour of placed asphalt is achieved (lower sensitivity to water action and cracking, and good skid resistance). Results obtained on three asphalt-pavement test sections, with and without addition of rubber in bitumen, are analysed after eleven years of road use. Characteristics of asphalt with different proportions of recycled rubber in bitumen and polymer modified bitumen are analysed.

Keywords
recycled rubber, bituminous mixtures, indirect tensile strength of asphalt
