Abstract: This paper investigates the effects of different sizes of crumb rubber modifier (CRM) on the high temperature susceptibility of three gradations (AC-10, AC-20 and PA) of wearing course mixtures. A wet process and 10% CRM by total weight of binders were used in these studies and the control variables for these studies included three CRMs of sizes 0.15 mm, 0.30 mm and 0.60 mm. The evaluations were twofold. Firstly, a comparison of the properties of those modified and unmodified binders at a wide range of testing temperatures and ageing conditions was conducted. Secondary, a comparison of the rutting resistance of the CRM and conventional mixtures was made. The results show that all the CRMs have overall contributed to better performance of both binders and mixtures at high temperatures. In addition, among these three CRM sizes, mixtures modified with 0.15 mm CRM exhibited the best effect on the dense-graded mixture (AC-10 and AC-20) whereas mixtures modified with 0.60 mm CRM exhibited the best effect on the open-graded mixture of porous asphalt (PA).
