The main aim of this research is to study the effect of using the additive materials (hydrated lime and metakaolin) on the behavior of roller compacted concrete. The experimental work includes several trial mixes to choose the most suitable roller compacted concrete mix in terms of physical concrete properties. The first step is to specify the optimum cement and water content which is designed in laboratory using 300 kg/m3 of cement and 0.5 W/C ratio while the second step the only variation is using the optimum sand content of 700 kg/m3 and the third step the variation is using the optimum percentage of the additive materials (metakaolin and hydrated lime) at percentages (5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25%) as a partial replacement by weight of cement, the optimum percentage of 15% of (HL and MK) as a partial replacement of cement at different ages. The research also includes studying the physical properties (compressive strength, splitting tensile strength and flexural strength) of specimens with additive materials and without additive materials. Also the results of RCC specimens with additive materials (MK and HL) show improvement in compressive strength, splittingtensile andflexural strength (modulus of rupture) compared with the specimen without additive materials.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of hydrated lime addition methods as filler replacement on fatigue performance of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA). Three types of addition methods of hydrated lime were introduced namely dry HL on dry aggregate and saturated surface aggregate above 3% and slurry HL on dry aggregate, ordinary Lime stone powder was reduced by three HL percentage (1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 %). The effect of different methods were investigated on the fatigue properties of HMA using, third-point flexural fatigue bending Test. Pneumatic Repeated Load System (PRLS) was carried out to establish the effect of hydrated lime on the fatigue failure criteria and to select the proper hydrated lime application methods on fatigue behavior of HMA mixtures. The fatigue functions for asphalt mixture with hydrated lime are obtained and compared, and it confirm that the fatigue property of asphalt mixture can be improved using all methods and the addition methods were exhibited different optimality for the result due to its effect . The test results were carried out through the performance analysis using Vesys 5W (2003) to study the long term effectiveness of hydrated lime effect.
