The main objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of nanosilica (NS) concentration on the rutting parameter of based asphalt binder using the multiple stress creep and recovery (MSCR) test. NS with concentrations between 1% to 5% (1% increment) was used to modify asphalt binder. The nanosilica modified asphalt binder (NSMB) were aged using rolling thin film oven (RTFO) before tested. MSCR test was conducted at 64°C with two stress level (100 Pa and 3200 Pa). The results found that the addition of NS reduced the accumulative strain of NSMB. Besides that, non-recoverable creep compliance decreased and recovery strain increased, which indicates an improvement of rutting resistance and elasticity of the binder, respectively. The grade of asphalt binder also improved from heavy (H) grade to extreme (E) grade. Overall, NSMB 2% show the best improvement in terms of Jnr and %R, thus NSMB 2% considered as a optimum percentage.
