Abstract : The purpose of this report is to identify factors to consider in selecting a hot in-place recycling project for asphalt pavements. This type of asphalt pavement recycling process is becoming very popular. This report discusses the different types of recycling processes and several selected hot in-place recycling processes that are becoming so popular today. The types of asphalt pavement distress and their causes are discussed to provide a working knowledge of possible applications for this process. Discussions on project selection, design, and construction considerations will also provide an awareness of considerations relative to this type of asphalt pavement rehabilitation. An understanding of these topics will be helpful when selecting hot in-place recycling. The information that this report is based upon was obtained from various sources. A literature search included technical reports, periodicals, and advertisements. Personal contact was made in the form of interviews with a number of representatives in the industry and on site inspection of Cutler Repaving, Inc. and Remixer Contracting Co., Inc. operations.
