Abstract

This recommendation proposes an experimental protocol to characterize recycled asphalt materials. The guidelines presented in this document are based on the results of a round robin test organized by the RILEM Technical Committee 237-SIB “Testing and characterization of sustainable innovative bituminous materials and systems” and provide information on the testing procedure, data analysis and indications for the preparation of a test report.
