Course Description

This publication contains guidance for preparing plans and specifications and for ensuring the quality of recycled bituminous concrete. In addition, this publication provides useful information to design engineers, laboratory personnel, and inspectors concerning the mix design, plant production, and laydown of recycled pavement mixtures. The emphasis is on airfield pavements, however, the concepts also apply to other pavements. Recycling pavement materials has proved to be a feasible process to rehabilitate worn-out pavements. Since recycled pavements will not always be cost-effective, recycling should be considered as an option when repairing or rehabilitating existing pavements.
