Abstract

‘Asphalt Rubber’ is a bitumen, mixed with 15 to 20 % of rubber granules from recycled tyres to improve the functional properties of asphalt pavements. The ‘Asphalt Rubber’-concept for asphalt pavements has been  uccessfully implemented in a number of US states The Swedish Road Administration (SRA) is currently involved in investigating the potential implementation of this concept in asphalt pavements through a three-year development project (2007-09). This paper presents promising test results from trials with asphalt rubber pavement materials from the ongoing projects and evaluation studies.
