Paper Title:
Experimental Investigation on Fracture and Tensile Characteristics of Micro-Surfacing Containing Crumb Rubber
  Abstract

The major objective of this research was to evaluate the tensile and fracture properties of micro-surfacing, which as a preventive maintenance surface treatment on asphalt pavement, that formed the basis for the ISSA recommendation of an optimum micro-surfacing design incorporating crumb rubber. The research involved a full-factorial experiment with different rubber contents (0, 2 and 5%) and different polymer modified asphalt emulsion contents ranged from 10 to 13% by total weight of crushed aggregate in micro-surfacing. Fracture and indirect tension tests were performed on micro-surfacing beams and Marshall test samples, respectively, at two different test temperatures of 25 and -10°C. The variables studied were indirect tensile strength, peak center-point load carried, and load-point displacement. The results show that higher mean values of indirect tensile strength were obtained corresponding to the highest modified asphalt emulsion content (13%), irrespective of rubber contents, particularly at lower temperatures. A statistical analysis of the test results reveals that there are no significant differences among the means of most of the variables studied corresponding to different rubber contents. However, the differences are significant for different asphalt emulsion contents.
