Jan 28, 2019 · Rutgers Asphalt Pavement Lab (RAPL) is the only independent, universitybased asphalt lab in the New York/New Jersey metro area that has been accredited since 2006 by the American Association of Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) to test asphalt mixtures, asphalt binder, aggregate, and ensure quality management. Accreditation proves CAIT
The Asphalt Institute strongly endorses the use of RAP in asphalt mixtures. RAP has a history of positive performance.Regarding limiting the RAP content, that is the decision of the specifying agency or owner. Almost all of the state highway departments now allow the use of RAP.

Specimens prepared in the laboratory shall be cured according to agency standards. Apparatus Balance or scale: 10,000 g capacity, readable to 0.1 g
BRRC has several tests for bitumens and asphalt mixtures, which are used both for research purposes and in giving assistance to third parties. 1. Performance tests on bitumens. DSR: mainly to evaluate the stiffness of a binder. BBR to evaluate the lowtemperature properties of bitumens (mainly failure behaviour).

The laboratory mixtures will be compared to plant produced mixtures to evaluate the degree of blending between the materials and RAP. The results of the study will be also evaluated the performance of recycled mixture in comparison to bituminous mixtures in accordance with the requirements of the different asphalt pavement layers.
The objectives of the 7 th International Conference are to present new developments, technologies, specifiions and research activities worldwide, in bituminous materials and pavements. Also, to exchange ideas and experiences, to the benefit of those engaged in Highway and Airport Engineering and in particular design, construction, maintenance and pavement management, reclaimed and
