The tensile and resilient characteristics of the cold-mixed asphalt-stabilized aggregates were investigated in the laboratory using the indirect tensile and resilient modulus techniques. The mixture was also characterized by using the Marshall equipment frequently used in asphalt concrete mix design. Specimens were fabricated with emulsified asphalt, two aggregate types, two emulsion contents, and two initial added moisture contents. The properties of the mixture were evaluated at different curing conditions and test temperatures. Comparisons were made between dry and vacuum saturated specimens to evaluate the moisture resistance of the mixture. Study results are reported.
