In the present paper, it is presented a proposal for an evaluation systemic approach aimed at the characterization of Asphalt Rubber Hot Mixes (ARHM). This constituted the input to develop a careful scientific-technical assessment process to assure the quality control of ARHM. In particular, this kind of approach allows i) to take immediate action to technical production and laying of ARHM that should also guarantee “traditional ” Italian road materials specifications ii) to develop AR expertise in terms of mechanical performance (stiffness, fatigue resistance and permanent deformation resistance) and functional properties (noise and skid resistance), trying to bridge the gap of knowledge with the international experience of forty years of successful use iii) to develop innovative scientific research to provide original contributions to engineering road materials investigation.

Abstract

In the present paper, it is presented a proposal for an evaluation systemic approach aimed at the characterization of Asphalt Rubber Hot Mixes (ARHM). This constituted the input to develop a careful scientific-technical assessment process to assure the quality control of ARHM. In particular, this kind of approach allows i) to take immediate action to technical production and laying of ARHM that should also guarantee “traditional ” Italian road materials specifications ii) to develop AR expertise in terms of mechanical performance (stiffness, fatigue resistance and permanent deformation resistance) and functional properties (noise and skid resistance), trying to bridge the gap of knowledge with the international experience of forty years of successful use iii) to develop innovative scientific research to provide original contributions to engineering road materials investigation.
