Effect of Matric Suction on Resilient Modulus of Compacted Recycled Pavement Material Kongrat Nokkaew (Presenter) James M. Tinjum, Tuncer B. Edil Mid-Continent Transportation Research Symposium 2013

Research Motivations Recycled pavement material (RPM) crushed asphalt surface mixed with underlying base course (i.e. subgrade and subbase) Advantages Excellent mechanical properties (e.g. high modulus, low moisture susceptibility) Life-cycle benefit (e.g. low transportation needs, no landfill cost) Environment-friendly (reducing green house gas emissions, energy and natural aggregate consumption) Mid-Continent Transportation Research Symposium 2013 Slide No. 2 University of Wisconsin-Madison

3
Premature failure due to moisture in base layer Base course: Moisture increases, modulus decreases Few studies on modulus-moisture for RPM Mid-Continent Transportation Research Symposium 2013 Slide No. 3 University of Wisconsin-Madison

Mid-Continent Transportation Research Symposium 2013 Slide No. 4 University of Wisconsin-Madison Unsaturated Zone Saturated Zone Ground water table “Pavements are compacted near optimum water content unsaturated, and place above the ground water table. As a result, Pavement are unsaturated most of service life”

22
Mid-Continent Transportation Research Symposium 2013 Slide No. 22 University of Wisconsin-Madison Conclusions RPM-MI provides higher SRM than limestone-WI SRM increases as matric suction increase The proposed model fits the test results well (R 2 = 0.93) over the full range of studied suction SRMs predicted from M-EPDG are not conservative during measured range of (1 – 100 kPa)
