Now days, reclaimed asphalt pavements are used in the production of asphalt mixtures. The use of this material has too many economic and environmental benefits. Beside, warm mix additives are materials that they reduce production temperature of asphalt mixtures and improve their workability in the constructed pavements. There is always a question that “what are the effects of reclaimed asphalt pavement and warm additive on the mix design parameters of asphalt mixtures?” In this research, the simultaneous effects of reclaimed asphalt pavement and a warm additive named Sasobit on the technical properties of asphalt mixtures were evaluated. For this purpose, an experimental plan was designed based on the response surface method for reclaimed asphalt pavement (from 0 to 50%), asphalt binder content (from 4 to 6%) and Sasobit content (from 0 to 3%). Then, the volumetric and strength properties of these mixtures were determined and compared with the Iranian pavement code criteria. Obtained laboratory results showed that an optimum point for fabrication of asphalt mixtures containing reclaimed asphalt pavement is a mixture with 4.6% asphalt binder, 12% reclaimed asphalt pavement and 3% Sasobit additive. Also, increasing the amount of the Sasobit showed that it increases the value of the Marshal strength, asphalt unit weight of mixtures and it reduces its air voids.
