Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP), Rural Roads


This paper seeks to evaluate the performance of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) in the construction of rural roads. It aims to assess the engineering properties, environmental sustainability, cost-effectiveness, and overall performance of RAP under rural road conditions. The study makes use of both field studies and laboratory tests to comprehensively understand the properties and performance of RAP. The present study will be helpful for the objective identification and characterization of RAP material, the optimum portion of RAP binder will be used in virgin binder and RAP aggregates can be reused in asphalt and sub-base as well. Marshall Flow value increased with increasing the RAP content. Marshall Stability= 916.33 kg. Bitumen content corresponding to maximum Stability = 5.5 %. Bitumen content (5.5%) and RAP content (20%) corresponding to. Air voids = 1.40%. VFB at 20 % = 95.38%.
