Research Projects
Chemical Analysis of the Interaction of CRM and Asphalt Binder

This project will involve physical and chemical analysis of asphalt binders, physical and chemical analysis of crumb rubber modifier (CRM), and correlations between this information and the rheological properties of rubber-modified asphalt binders (RMAB). The following tests would be performed:

  1. State Highway Research Program (SHRP) method analysis of asphalt binder
  2. Moisture content of CRM
  3. Ash content of CRM
  4. Carbon black content of CRM
  5. Sulfur content of CRM
  6. Gas Chromatography with Mass Spectroscopy
  7. Infrared Spectroscopy
  8. Differential Scanning Calorimetry
  9. X-Ray Differential Spectroscopy
  10. And more…
