Abstract :

Pavement recycling is becoming an important alternative worldwide for maintenance of highways, once sustainability and environmental issues have continued to receive more attention. The existing road surface asphalt mix has been 100% reused and recycled with new admix added as designed. By comparing all methods, hot in place recycling method is the best method for the maintenance of highway (flexible pavement) by surface recycling. India is faced with a challenge of the urgent need to rehabilitate the existing roads as well as to construct new roads under growing concerns with energy prices, aggregate shortages and the global warming. The reference point is that of considering the use of road materials in a closed cycle, in which a natural material, previously used in road construction, should not be rejected in the following life-cycle. The objective of this paper is that of analyzing flexible pavement recycling alternatives techniques, including reclaimed material from flexible pavements recycled with emulsion, cement and reused in a hot-mix. With the results obtained from the pavement design, the cost savings of using recycled materials in the different pavement structures were quantified and compared to a standard option, where new natural aggregates and binders would be used.
