Abstract

This study looks at determining the suitability of waste cooking oil-based asphalt for making Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA), through structural strength testing – rutting and fatigue properties, using the South African Model Mobile Load Tester (MMLS3). Slabs of conventional and waste cooking oil asphalt mixes were tested for fatigue and rutting properties. These results showed that there was no statistical difference in rutting between the two slabs and a significant difference in fatigue testing.
