Rutting susceptibility of asphalt concrete with recycled concrete aggregate using revised Marshall procedure

Gul, Waqar Ahmed
Güler, Murat
Natural aggregate is the primary ingredient of asphalt concrete and Portland cement concrete mixtures. Recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) derived from demolition wastes can be used in asphalt mixtures to eliminate potential problems arising from disposing these materials and conserve natural aggregate resources. This study presents methods for using RCA in asphalt mixtures based on repeated creep tests. The standard Marshall mixture design method is revised to prepare specimens satisfying the minimum size and aspect ratio requirement in uniaxial testing. The study shows that addition of RCA can improve the resistance of mixtures to permanent deformation and hence, rutting depending on mixture gradation.

Aggregates are the most widely used construction materials in the world in structures built from both asphaltic and portland cement concrete composites. The performance of these composites is affected by aggregate shape characteristics (e.g., angularity, texture, and dimensions). The aggregate imaging system (AIMS) is a computer automated system that was developed to measure aggregate shape characteristics using digital camera images of aggregates. This paper addresses four issues concerning AIMS measuremen...
Activation of Blast Furnace Slag with Soda Production Waste
Bilginer, Baki Aykut; Erdoğan, Sinan Turhan (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2020-01-01)
Although the absence of portland cement (PC) in alkali-activated slag (AAS) lowers its carbon footprint, conventional alkaline activators like sodium silicate are expensive and have large environmental impacts. Soda solid waste (SSW) is an alkaline waste of the glass industry, and its disposal poses environmental problems. This study investigated the use of SSW to activate ground slag at 60 degrees C-120 degrees C. Strength development of mortars and heat evolution of pastes were evaluated. Hydration produc...
Properties of blended cements with thermally activated kaolin

Kaolin, one of the materials of major importance for the ceramic and paper industry, is also used in the construction industry as a raw material for the production of white cement clinker and, in the form of metakaolin, as an artificial pozzolanic additive for concrete. Metakaolin is a vital component of high-performance and architectural concrete; however, its application in regular concrete is very limited due to relatively high production costs. This report evaluates the performance of a low-cost metakao...
Properties of Ground Perlite Geopolymer Mortars
Erdoğan, Sinan Turhan (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2015-07-01)
Perlite is a volcanic aluminosilicate abundant in several countries that are major producers of portland cement. The amorphous nature and silica-to-alumina ratio of ground perlite indicate that it can be activated with alkaline solutions. This study presents the strength development of mixtures containing only ground perlite as their powder binder, activated with sodium hydroxide and/or sodium silicate solutions, at room temperature or using oven curing. The structure of the formed geopolymers is investigat...
Strength of carbon fiber reinforced polymers bonded to concrete and masonry
Serdar Camli, Umit; Binici, Barış (Elsevier BV, 2007-07-01)
Fiber reinforced polymers (FRPs) have gained popularity in upgrades of reinforced concrete structural elements within the last decade because of their ease of application and high strength-to-weight ratio. In the design of an effective retrofitting solution using FRP systems, the anchorage capacity has an important role. This study presents the results of 57 double shear push-out tests conducted to determine the strength of carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRPs) bonded to concrete prisms and hollow clay t...
