Abstract: This paper examines the effect of the manufacturing process on the static mechanical properties of modified bituminous concrete by partially replacing the bitumen with the mass sum of tyre powder, plastic bottle powder, and sulfur. This optimization is in response to the persistence of pavement degradation despite multiple solutions based on material type and method of obtaining doped bituminous concrete. These solutions are high modulus mixes (EME), bituminous concretes doped with rubber or plastics and cross-linked bituminous concretes on the one hand, and bituminous composites manufactured by dry or wet process (Shaoula; 2008), after partial substitution of conventional materials by dopants or by adding dopants on the other.To better understand the evolution of the static mechanical properties of neo-bituminous concrete using the Duriez (NF P 98-251-1) and Marshall (NF P 98-251-2) tests, the product was manufactured using the wet process and the dry process (Shaoula; 2008), respectively, after formulation. Formulation translated by 5%, 10%, and 15% substitution of bitumen by the mass sum of PUNR powder, PET powder, and sulfur at 40%, 28%, and 32%, respectively. All of this is preceded by component characterization in accordance with relevant standards. It is discovered that bituminous concretes modified and manufactured using the wet process are quite compact, stable, and resistant than the control composite on the one hand, and clearly preferential to those manufactured using the dry process on the other.
