1 High Modulus Asphalt (HiMA) Technology Transfer (T 2 ) November 2010 Progress report Prepared for presentation at the 20 th meeting of the Roads Pavements Forum (RPF), CSIR ICC, 10 November 2010 Erik Denneman

2 Slide 2 © CSIR Presentation structure Background on HiMA, The sabita HiMA T 2 project, Progress since RPF May Design guide, Way forward.

3 Slide 3 © CSIR High Modulus Asphalt (HiMA) Origin: France early 90s “Enrobés à Module Elevé” (EME) Typical characteristics: High binder content ≈ 6% by mass of aggregate, Hard binder: Pen 10-25, Low air voids content, High Modulus > 14 GPa at 15°C, 10 Hz, High resistance against permanent deformation, Good fatigue resistance, Impermeable, High mixing temperature.

4 Slide 4 © CSIR sabita HiMA T 2 project Phase IV Drafting of guidelines and specs Phase III Validation through APT,LTPP and lab study Phase II Preliminary mix and structural design guidelines Phase I Feasibility study

5 Slide 5 © CSIR HiMA T 2 progress (since previous RPF) Preliminary design guidelines complete, Validation mix design for APT pending, Waiting for suitable binder
