  • Abstract:
    The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has been using scrap tire rubber (called crumb

    rubber modifier (CRM)) in asphalt pavements since the 1970s in chip seals and the 1980s in rubberized

    asphalt concrete (RAC). The performance of the projects has varied from poor to excellent, with

    relatively good overall performance. In recent years, however, improved specifications and practices

    have yielded more consistent performance.

    To evaluate the state of the technology of using scrap tire rubber in paving materials, a comprehensive

    review of the literature search was undertaken. Nearly 400 documents representing a cross-section of

    information and focused primarily on experience throughout the United States were reviewed. Findings

    were organized in the following topics areas, with some overlap: historical perspective; applications/field

    operations; materials selection and design; structural design; performance; recycling; cost; environmental

    issues; other uses; and specifications.
