Thermal performances of asphalt mixtures using recycled tyre rubber as mineral filler

Recycled tyre rubber was used to replace varying fractions of limestone as filler in asphalt in order to determine the effect that the added rubber would have on the thermal and physical properties of the asphalt. The properties of interest were the penetration, soft point, and ductility of the asphalt binder, as well as the moisture sensitivity, thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and volumetric thermal capacity of the asphalt mixtures. It ...

Thermal Resistance Wearing Course Development and Performance

In an effort to lessen the Urban Heat Island effect, aggregate in road wearing course was replaced in varying amounts with sintered clay or recycled ceramic. The physical and thermal properties of these new mixtures were then examined to determine if they showed improvements over traditional wearing course. It was found that the replacement of aggregate with sintered clay decreased the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity. A similar result was ...
