Highlights

  • Study aims at determining binder availability from RAS material in asphalt mixtures.
  • Virgin and RAS mixtures were designed with identical volumetric parameters and asphalt contents were compared.
  • Binder availability was determined to be approximately 100% for RAS mixtures.
  • Performance-based tests were used to characterize RAS mixtures.
  • Field observations of mixtures with RAS were reported.
