The Influence of different mixture design variables on thermal fatigue cracking of asphalt concrete pavements /
Arabzadeh, Ali; Güler, Murat; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
In this study, in order to investigate the thermal fatigue resistance of naturally-aged asphalt concrete specimens, an experimental setup is developed. Mixture design variables, selected according the superpave method of design, include asphalt content, asphalt type, aggregate type, gradation and modification. In the course of this study, using the developed setup, thermal coefficients and thermal fatigue life of the asphalt concrete specimens are measured. Then, using the analysis of variance tests the sig...
Parametric study on selected mathematical models for dynamic creep behavior of asphalt concrete
Öztürk, Hande Işık; Acar, Soner Osman; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
Rut formation has long been recognized as a distress mechanism in flexible pavements. One of the causes of rut formation in flexible pavements is permanent deformation of uppermost asphalt concrete layers due to repeatedly applied traffic loading. The long term permanent deformation of asphalt concrete under repeated load is commonly called as dynamic creep. The primary objective of this thesis is to examine dynamic creep behavior of asphalt concrete specimens tested in laboratory and also study some suitab...
Low temperature performance of asphalt concrete under direct tension loading
Karakaya, Yalçın; Güler, Murat; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
Thermal cracking is one of the major distresses in asphalt pavements and has been a serious concern especially in cold regions. There are two different mechanisms for temperature cracking in the field: Low temperature cracking associated with severe temperature drops and thermal fatigue cracking in reaction to repeated temperature cycles. In this study, in order to investigate the thermal tensile properties of asphalt concrete, Direct Tension Test (DTT) is utilized in a TSRST experimental setup. Naturally-a...
Effect of recycled cement concrete content on rutting behavior of asphalt concrete
Gul , Waqar Ahmed; Güler, Murat; Department of Civil Engineering (2008)
Disposed waste materials remained from demolished buildings have been an environmental problem especially for developing countries. Recycled Cement Concrete (RCC) is one of the abundant components of waste materials that include quality aggregates. Use of RCC in asphalt concrete pavements is economically a feasible option as it not only helps in recycling waste materials but also preserves natural resources by fulfilling the demand for quality aggregate in pavement constructions. However, due to variability...
Investigation of low temperature cracking in asphalt concrete pavement
Qadir, Adnan; Güler, Murat; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
In this study, low temperature cracking of asphalt concrete is investigated based on a laboratory experimental program including the design variables of aggregate type, gradation, asphalt content, binder grading, binder modification, and the experimental variables of cooling rate, and specimen size. The design of experiment is proposed according to the fractional factorial design principles to reduce the required number of test specimens. Mix designs are performed according to the Superpave mix design guide...
