In this investigation, the use of Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW) as aggregates in cold asphalt mixtures was studied. Cold asphalt mixtures, grave-emulsion type, with 100% of recycled aggregates and control mixes, with 100% of natural aggregates, were tested in order to obtain their volumetric properties, as well as the parameters of their visco-elasto-plastic behavior (indirect tensile strength, indirect tensile stiffness modulus, dynamic modulus and resistance to permanent deformation) and non-linear elastic behavior (by means of triaxial tests, such as resilient modulus and resistance to permanent deformation). The results show that CDW are not only suitable for general use in medium/low traffic roads, but also they improve some properties of cold asphalt mixes, compared with those made just with natural aggregates.
