Title: Evaluation of the benefits of adding waste fiberglass roofing shingles to Hot-Mix asphalt. Final report

Abstract

The decreased availability of landfills, growing concern over waste disposal, and rising cost of asphalt cement, resulted in an increased interest in incorporating waste asphalt roofing shingles in the production of asphalt concrete mixes. This project addressed Hot-Mix, surface course asphalt concrete mixes produced with an addition of waste fiberglass asphalt roofing shingles that were obtained from the shingle manufacturing process. A total of twenty-six asphalt concrete mixes were studied. The variables included: aggregate type, shingle producers, level of shingle addition (0, 5, 10, and 15%), and type of shingle size reduction. Properties of the produced asphalt concrete mixes were evaluated based on the results of applicable tests that were performed.
