Shingles in Asphalt

Disposed roofing shingles are rich in asphalt. So, it is of economical benefit to use shingles in asphalt concrete because of this high binder content. This will also benefit the environment as a demolished construction material is being used back in construction. However, shingle binder is very still and its use in pavement is limited. This research will focus on increasing the amount of shingle that can be used in asphalt using rejuvenators. The tools used to determine the quality of the asphalt concrete containing shingles will be decided based on performance tests to capture various engineering properties.
