TL;DR: In this paper, the simulation of wheel tracking test and the high-temperature rutting behavior of an asphalt mixture by using the discrete element method (DEM) was investigated.
Abstract: This study investigated the simulation of wheel tracking test and the high-temperature rutting behaviour of an asphalt mixture by using the discrete element method (DEM). Based on the DEM software named as Particle Flow Code in three dimensions (PFC3D), a micromechanical model of an asphalt mixture composed of coarse aggregates, asphalt mastic, and air voids was built and a two-dimensional virtual wheel tracking test was simulated. Based on the virtual wheel tracking test, the distribution of displacement and contact forces within test specimen were analysed. It is proved that the built virtual wheel tracking test can capture the rutting deformation caused by the combination of densification and lateral flow deformation. It is also indicated that, within an asphalt mixture, the aggregate skeleton is the main bearing body for the compressive forces, while the compressive and tensile forces between aggregate and mastic are severer than that within asphalt mastic. It is important to guarantee the stability o...

TL;DR: A holistic evaluation of the feasibility of producing 100% recycled asphalt pavement mixtures is presented in this article, where a cradle-to-gate analysis of environmental effects indicated 18 kg or 35% CO2eq savings per t of produced 100% RAP asphalt mixture compared to virgin mix, while cost analysis showed at least 50% savings in material related expenses.
Abstract: a b s t r a c t A holistic evaluation of the feasibility of producing 100% recycled mixtures is presented. Eleven tech- nologies readily available for producing 100% Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) hot asphalt mixtures are described in the article and the complementary video (http://youtu.be/coj-e5mhHEQ). The recorded performance of 100% RAP mixtures is analyzed along with identification of typical high RAP distresses. Recommended mix design procedures and the best RAP management strategies are described. A cradle- to-gate analysis of environmental effects indicated 18 kg or 35% CO2eq savings per t of produced 100% RAP asphalt mixture compared to virgin mix, while cost analysis showed at least 50% savings in material related expenses.
