• The Influence of Alternative Fillers on the Adhesive ...

    The adhesion between bitumen and aggregates strongly influences the lifetime of pavements. To improve adhesiveness, the road construction industry has been using additives to alter the interfacial energy and improve the affinity of materials in the presence of water. However, the water sensitivity v .

  • Adhesion of aggregatebinder systems | TU Delft Repositories

    A strong adhesion between the constituents of pavement and between the layers of the pavement is an indiion of its durability. Many modern materials like rubber, fibre, epoxy binder, adhesion promoter etc., are used as a replacement or addition to the conventional bitumen and aggregate materials in pavement construction.

  • Softening Point of Bitumen

    Affinity and adhesion of bitumen: There should be adequate affinity and adhesion between the bitumen and aggregates used in the mix. The softening point of materials like asphalt, bitumen have no definite melting point, but when heated it gradually changes from brittle or very thick and slowflowing materials to more mobile liquid material.

  • Adhesive and Cohesive Properties of AsphaltAggregate ...

    ABSTRACT The bond strength between asphalt and aggregate plays a fundamental role in evaluating the moisture sensitivity of HMA Mixtures. In this study the effect of water on adhesive and cohesive properties of asphaltaggregate systems was investigated using a modified version of the PATTI. The device was used to measure the pulloff strength on different asphaltaggregate combinations and to ...

     · Degradation of asphalt pavements is an inevitable phenomenon due to the combined effects of high traffic loads and harsh environmental conditions. Deterioration can be in the form of cohesive failure of the bitumen and/or bitumenfiller mastic or by adhesive failure between bitumen and aggregate. This paper presents an experimental investigation to characterise the cohesive and .
