It is well known that asphalt materials are more resistant in compression than in tension. When properly homogenized with the asphalt mixture, high tensile strength fibers are supposed to carry part of the tensile strength, which results in a longer lasting material. The goal of this research is to understand the impacts of adding Aramid pulp to asphalt mixes in order to make longer-lasting asphalt mixtures. This research will be divided into two parts: mix design tests and mix performance tests.
