Summary:
The main objective of this study is to evaluate the viability of using Pyrolized Carbon Black (CBp) derived from waste
tires as a reinforcing agent in asphalt mixtures.  Commercial Carbon Black (CB) has been previously shown to reduce
the rutting resistance, the temperature susceptibility and the cracking propagation potential of asphalt concrete.  It was
believed the CBp could produce similar benefits, and this laboratory study has shown that such is the case.
