List of  

ACCEPTED

PAPERS

Thank you to all the authors 
who submitted their hard work 
for this great event! 
    
Accepted Papers 
will be included in the 
Conference book and on a CD


The Conference is looking for rubberized asphalt and asphalt rubber papers that fall in any of the following categories:
- Studies demonstrating the energy savings and CO2 savings that society drives when asphalt rubber or rubberized mixes are used in pavement strategies;
     
- Reports on demonstration projects using rubberized or asphalt rubber mixes;
     
- New methods of testing of rubberized asphalt binders;
    
- PG grading of rubberized asphalt binders;
    
- Mechanical testing of asphalt hot mixes (wet, dry and hybrid) containing rubberized asphalt binders);
    
- Paving uses of rubberized and asphalt rubber asphalt binders with any types of mixes, dense graded, gap, open, SMA and others;
    
- Preservation strategies using of rubberized asphalts and asphalt rubber binders such as seal coats, slurry seals, all others;
    
- New innovative methods of making, applying or constructing with rubberized asphalt or asphalt rubber;
    
- Environmental applications of rubberized asphalt and asphalt rubber such as to reduce noise or saving energy;
    
- General discussions about scrap tire rubber as applied to rubberized asphalt or asphalt rubber;
    


As can be seen the RAR2018 Conference is casting as broad a net as possible regarding rubberized asphalt rubber papers.
    


Authors are advised that English is the Conference language. Abstracts should be no more than 500 words. Typically the papers should be no more than 20 pages in length. Authors are encouraged to include figures in color. Authors will be advised if they should prepare a paper by October 31, 2017 and final papers will be due by March 15, 2018. Accepted papers will be included in the Conference book and on a CD. On behalf of the Conference we look forward to the RAR2018 Conference being the most comprehensive Conference on the beginning of a new era of Rubberized Asphalt Rubber usage.

RAR2018 Conference

Rubberized Asphalt Rubber 2018 (RAR2018) Conference Call for Papers

The RAR2018 Conference is the 2018 installment of Asphalt Rubber Conferences. RAR2018 is the next Conference in the series of Asphalt Rubber Conferences which have included: AR2000 Portugal, AR2003 Brazil, AR2006 Palm Springs, AR2009 China, AR2012 Germany and RAR2015 Las Vegas. The name of the Conference has changed in recognition of the significant changes in the state of the art and practice that have taken place in the recycling of scrap tires in asphalt and asphalt paving. RAR2018 will be held in South Africa at Protea Hotel Kruger Gate, September 25-28, 2018.  

RAR2018 Book of Proceedings

RAR2018 will focus on any and all rubberized asphalt materials containing scrap tire rubber, from a low percentage such as 5 percent to higher percentages above even 20 percent. Since there have been so many recent significant changes in the testing, specifying and application of scrap tire rubber in asphalt this Conference’s focus is literally on all types of asphalt binders or asphalt hot mixes containing any percentage of scrap tire rubber, as well as both wet and dry applications. In addition both generic and proprietary rubberized asphalt products can be reported.


HERE IS THE LIST OF ACCEPTED PAPERS FOR 2018

Since papers in the RAR2018 are all peer reviewed, we plan to selected a number of them for further consideration and publication in the International Journal of Road Materials and Pavement Design (IJRMPD). The selected papers should be extended and completed before submission to RMPD.  This creates the potential opportunity for some of RAR2018’s high caliber papers to be included in future editions of IJRMPD.  The IJRMPD has a blind peer review process for accepting papers, and has substantial international distribution, and, above all it is indexed in SCI.  This could facilitate the dissemination of papers that would otherwise be confined to these proceedings and with somewhat limited distribution.  Therefore, it should be understood that papers that are being presented at this conference may be later accepted for the peer review and modification process of the IJRMPD prior to their printing. For those papers accepted later for publication by the IJRMPD, their inclusion here in the RAR2018 Proceedings should be considered as pre-publication drafts.
