Investigation on Properties of Granite Asphalt Mixtures Prepared Using Fine Recycled Concrete Aggregate
In order to improve the performance of granite asphalt mixtures, as well as make full use of waste concrete, the AC-25 asphalt mixtures were prepared using fine recycled concrete aggregate and coarse granite aggregate. The moisture stability, high-temperature property, low-temperature property and fatigue property of asphalt mixtures were investigated. Results indicate that fine recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) improves the moisture stability and low-temperature property of granite asphalt mixtures which can meet the requirements of China’s Technical Specification for Construction of Highway Asphalt Pavements (JTG F40-2004) and even are better than those of traditional limestone asphalt mixtures. Meanwhile, fine RCA makes the advantage of granite asphalt mixtures in high-temperature property more distinct with good fatigue property.
