Polymer modified bitumen (PMB) is a binder obtained by the incorporation of polymer into the bitumen by mechanical mixing or chemical reaction. This study deals with the modification of bitumen with three types of polymers (LDPE, EVA, and SBS) in the presence of filler (CaCO3). The morphological, mechanical, rheological properties, and thermal conductivity of the PMBs have been analyzed by scanning electron microscopy, tensile testing, melt flow index (MFI) measurements and hot wire method, respectively. The results indicate that the above-mentioned properties of PMBs are influenced by polymer and bitumen nature and its composition. The mechanical properties of composites prepared at different temperatures exhibit small differences. In general, the inclusion of polymer increases tensile strength and Young's modulus and reduces percentage strain and MFI values, also, polymer inclusion reduces the thermal conductivity values of the composites.

Effect of polymer additives on the physical properties of bitumen based composites
Doğan, Mehmet; Bayramlı, Erdal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2006)
Polymer modified bitumen is a binder obtained by the incorporation of various types of polymers in bitumen using mechanical mixing or chemical reactions. There are several factors affecting the properties of polymer modified bituminous composites such as; chemical composition of bitumen, kind of polymer and filler, compatibility of bitumen and polymer, amount of bitumen, polymer and filler, particle size of filler and process conditions. The main objective of this study is to determine the effects of polyme...
Effect of preparation parameters on the performance of conductive composite gas separation membranes
Gulsen, D; Hacarloglu, P; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yılmaz, Levent (2001-02-15)
Mixed matrix composite membranes of a conducting polymer, polypyrrole (PPy), and an insulating polymer, polybisphenol-A-carbonate (PC) were prepared by a combined in-situ polymerization and solvent evaporation. Mixed matrix composite membranes were synthesized to combine the good gas transport properties of conductive polymer, PPy, with good mechanical properties of PC.
Effects of nanoparticles on thermal degradation of polylactide/aluminium diethylphosphinate composites
Kaya, Hatice; Özdemir, Esra; Kaynak, Cevdet; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2016-03-01)
We investigated the thermal degradation characteristics of polylactide (PLA) aluminium diethylphosphinate (AlPi) composites involving SiO2, halloysite (HNT) and organically modified montmorillonite (OMMT) via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Presence of nanoparticles, SiO2, HNT and OMMT affected both thermal stability and relative yields of thermal degradation products of PLA/AlPi. The transesterification reactions and interactions between PLA and AlPi were depressed in the presence of SiO2 and HNT. The ...
Effect of resin and fiber on the abrasion, impact and pressure resistance of cylindrical composite structures
Kaya, Derya; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Department of Chemical Engineering (2011)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of resin and fiber on the abrasion, impact and internal pressure resistances of fiber reinforced plastic composite pipes produced by continuous filament winding method. For this study, pipe samples were produced with different combinations of resin type, fiber type, fiber amount and fiber length. All the samples were tested in accordance with the related ISO (International Organization for Standardization), DIN (German Standardization Institution) and BSI...
Effect of carbon nanotube surface treatment on the morphology, electrical, and mechanical properties of the microfiber-reinforced polyethylene/poly(ethylene terephthalate)/carbon nanotube composites
Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (2013-01-15)
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of carbon nanotube (CNT) chemical properties, CNT content, and molding temperature on the morphology, electrical, and mechanical properties of the microfiber-reinforced polymer composites. These composites were prepared by extrusion and hot stretching the poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET)/CNT phase in high density polyethylene (HDPE) matrix. Surfaces of the CNT were modified by purification with strong acid mixture (HNO3 : H2SO4 mixture 1 : 1 by volume) f...
