2. Evaluation of Recron 3S Polyester for Use in Bituminous Mixes
Date of Start:

April 2003
Central Road Research Institute, New Delhi (R, I)
Reliance Industries Limited (S)

 

Present Status and Progress

The broad objective of the study is to optimize RECRON 3S fiber in different bituminous mixes viz, BM, DBM, SDBC, BC, SMA and Cold Mixes and then compare the properties of optimized RECRON 3S fiber with mixes prepared with CRMB-60 (without fiber)

Most of the work has been completed except the laboratory studies on Resilient Modulus using different combinations of fibers which are currently in progress.
