Abstractsphalt is the most recycled materials around the world and the amount of RAP materials can be significantly increased with the application of good RAP management applications. In Iraq, the real inclusion of RAP materials in asphalt mixtures has not been applied yet in the field. It is therefore that there is a need to characterize the effect of inclusion RAP materials in asphalt mixtures with particular reference to permeant deformation/rutting resistance. The aim of this study is to evaluate the best layer of pavement structure; base, binder, and surface layers for inclusion (RAP) materials. In addition, highlight the best percentage that can be added from RAP to achieve positive results and better than that associated reference mixture in terms of rutting resistance. RAP materials collected from different sources Karbala and Fallujah, were adopted in this study at percentages of 20%, 30%, and 40% by weight of the asphalt mixture. Two scenarios of incorporating RAP materials have been adopted. The first is considered that RAP as a black rock in which the effect of aged binder surrounding the aggregate of RAP is neglected while, the letter is not considered RAP as black rock and the influence of aged binder in RAP materials has been taken into consideration. Dora bitumen has adopted in the current study which is used in common in Iraq. It has been highlighted the best layer in which RAP can be incorporated is the base layer, with a percentage up to 40% that RAP without considering RAP black rocks regardless the sources of RAP.
