150 A Manual for Design of Hot Mix Asphalt with Commentary incorporating RAP may require the consideration of multiple RAP stockpiles each with a specific aggregate gradation and binder content. Overview of the Mixture Design Process with RAP Figure 9-1 is a flowchart for designing HMA mixtures with RAP. In the volumetric design and performance analysis, RAP stockpiles are treated much the same as new material stockpiles. RAP stockpiles, however, require additional testing to characterize the properties and the variability of the RAP material.
