Abstract: The recycle of asphalt pavement material is not only accordance with the policy of national energy conservation and emission reduction, but also can significantly reduce the project cost. Viscoelastic mechanical model of recycled asphalt mixture is studied based on pavement maintenance engineering of Shenyang-Shanhaiguan expressway, and with analysis of material performance we could collect testing data from bending creep test on small beam, obtain testing parameters through fitting method. The results indicate that general Maxwell model could nicely reflect the viscoelastic mechanical behavior of recycled asphalt mixture.

Abstract: Based on the theory of hierarchy analysis, the post-assessment indexes system of cold recycling technology project have been established, and the hierarchy analytic procedure have been used to determine the weighing coefficients for post-assessment indexes of cold recycling engineering of asphalt pavement, and the weighing values for various levels factors were given for the cold recycling base layer project of highway of Shenyang-Yingkou. Considering the road performance and economic benefit, societal and environmental benefit, the analytic hierarchy procedure (AHP) method can effectively avoid making wrong decisions subjectively and made it more scientific and reasonable to determine the weighing values of post-assessment indexes, and it is an effective method to determine the weighing values for post-assessment indexes of the cold recycling technology project.

Abstract: The objectives of this paper are to characterize the mechanical properties of porous asphalt pavement mixtures containing RAP and a WMA additive using Super pave gyratory compactor and dynamic modulus testing. Four types of asphalt mixtures were evaluated in this study. This study evaluated compaction energy index, permeability, indirect tensile strength, and dynamic modulus for all types of porous asphalt mixtures. All of the asphalt mixtures meet the typical minimum coefficient of permeability in this study. In addition, only a slight decrease in was found when WMA additive was added to the porous asphalt mixture containing RAP. For indirect tensile strength testing, WMA containing RAP was found to have the highest tensile strength among all of the mixtures tested.

Abstract: Based on the viscoelasticity theory and the data of creep test, Burgers model was established, which was used to study the viscoelastic property of SBR asphalt mixtures, and the viscoelastic constitutive relation was obtained. Using the finite element method, the temperature stresses field was calculated under the environmental conditions and the thermal stresses of SBR modified asphalt pavement was given at the last part of this paper. The study indicated that SBR modified asphalt mixtures have the advantage over common asphalt mixture in low-temperature performance.

Abstract: Asphalt mixture is a kind of typical elastic-viscoplastic material. Environment temperature and loading condition will greatly affect its performance. As the temperature falls, asphalt pavement will engender a shrinkage deformation under the action of temperature stress. When the accumulated temperature stress exceeds tensile strength, the asphalt pavement will be cracked. Based on the results of the bending creep test in low temperature, the Burgers model was established and the viscoelastic parameters in the model were given, and the relaxation modulus of asphalt mixture was also determined in this paper. The study indicated that SBR modified asphalt mixtures have the advantage over common asphalt mixture in low-temperature performance.
