Abstract: 

A Hot-In-Place Asphalt Recycling remixer machine has been designed based on Design For X (DFX). The HIPAR machinery train consists of super heater, miller A, miller B, pugmill and paver. This design aims to combine all but the pre-heaters and the paver into one unit, removing three machines and replacing them with one. Although Hot-In-Place Asphalt Recycling has been improved by the application of new technologies, issues remain that need to be resolved; these include fuel conservation, speed at which the recycling process proceeds, maximum and variability of the recyclable width, constant need for virgin mix supply trucks, end-product smoothness, quality, and emissions. In general the principles for remixer design are operation cost efficiency and environmental friendliness. Design for Cost of Operation and Design for Environment are utilized to improve the aforementioned technical issues and form the basis of this thesis.
