We are on track to have an in person conference in Malaga on the 26th to 29th of June 2022 (www.rar2022.net).







Peter E. Sebaaly, PhD, PE

Director of Pavement Engineering & Science Program, University of Nevada, USA




Dr. Peter E. Sebaaly is a Professor of Civil Engineering and Director of the Western Regional Superpave Center (WRSC) and the Pavement Engineering & Science (PES) Program at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). He is a registered Professional Engineer in the states of Nevada & Arizona, USA. He earned his B.S.C.E. (1982) and M.S.C.E. (1983) from the State University of New York at Buffalo and his Ph.D. (1987) from Arizona State University, specializing in pavements/materials engineering.

In 1990, Dr. Sebaaly joined the faculty of the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR).  Dr. Sebaaly is currently working on several research projects on the development of new engineered materials to enhance the durability and sustainability of asphalt pavements and the incorporation of these materials into design methods and specifications for maintenance, rehabilitation, and construction of pavements.




Pushing the Limit on Recycling Old Tires in

Asphalt Mixtures


The majority of tire rubber modified asphalt mixtures use up to 20 percent crumb rubber. The latest research conducted at the University of Nevada has used up to 50 percent crumb rubber to modify asphalt mixtures. The research evaluated the performance grades (PG) of the tire rubber modified asphalt binders and multiple performance characteristics of the modified asphalt mixtures, including; resistance to moisture damage, rutting, fatigue and reflective cracking. In addition, the engineering property of the tire rubber modified asphalt mixtures were evaluated in terms of their dynamic modulus master curves.

The presentation will cover all the data generated through the research program and assess the impacts of the measured properties on the estimated performance of asphalt pavements. The performance of asphalt pavements will be evaluated through advanced mechanistic analyses that combine the measured engineering properties and performance characteristics of the rubber modified asphalt mixtures under various conditions of dynamic vehicle loading.

Conference General Scope


RAR2022 will focus on any and all rubberized asphalt materials containing scrap tire rubber, from a low percentage such as 5 percent to higher percentages above even 24 percent. Since there have been so many recent significant changes in the testing, specifying and application of scrap tire rubber in asphalt this Conferences focus is literally on all types of asphalt binders or asphalt hot mixes containing any percentage of scrap tire rubber, as well as both wet and dry applications. In addition both generic and proprietary rubberized asphalt products can be reported. Case studies, environmental effects and benefits, cost effectiveness of many paving construction materials and techniques will be presented.




When appropriate technical trips are arranged to particular important project or construction sites or plants.
