A laboratory investigation was performed to better understand the performance of Cement-Treated Base (CTB) mixtures containing Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP) during a long-lasting service period. Two CTB mixtures, one containing only virgin aggregates and the other containing RAP and virgin aggregates, were tested by triaxial tests (static and cyclic) and resonant column tests to evaluate stiffness and dampening at very small deformations. Similar mechanical properties and response to cyclic loadings were obtained for the two mixtures. The results led to the conclusion that the use of RAP as a replacement for virgin aggregates for a CTB mixture does not cause any significant alteration in terms of mechanical performance.
