Rheological Characterization of Crumb Rubber Modified Asphalt Binder

When ground tire rubber (GTR) is added to the asphalt binder, it changes its characteristics and engineering properties. This research will focus on changes in rheological properties of GRT modified binder. Rehological testing includes determination of properties of binder at low, intermediate, and high temperature. Multiple Stress Creep and Recovery, Linear Amplitude Sweep, Rotational Viscosity, Bending Beam, and torsional tests will be used to evaluate the change in properties.
