  1. 1. Sustainable Implementation of Electrified Roads : Structural and Material Analyses

    Författare :Feng Chen; Niki Kringos; Andreas Loizos; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electrified road; Structural performance; Constitutive modelling; Asphalt; Dielectric loss.; Elektrifierade vägar; Strukturellt beteende; Konstruktivt modellerande; Asfalt; Dielektrisk förlust.; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : Given the promise of the Inductive Power Transfer (IPT) technology for eRoad applications, the potential challenges for a successful integration of dynamic IPT technology into the physical road structure are explored extensively in this research work. The Finite Element Method (FEM) is selected for studying the structural performance of an eRoad under operational conditions. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Ageing of Asphalt Mixtures : Micro-scale and mixture morphology investigation

    Författare :Prabir Kumar Das; Björn Birgisson; Nicole Kringos; Andreas Loizos; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Ageing; Aggregate packing; Atomic force microscopy; Asphalt mixture; Bitumen; Diffusion; Finite element analysis; Gradation; Micro-structure; Mixture morphology; Oxidative ageing; Surface ageing;

    Sammanfattning : There are many variables that affect the viscoelastic properties of asphalt mixtures with time, among which age hardening may be considered one of the important ones. Age hardening of asphalt mixtures is an irreversible process, which contributes to a reduction of the durability of pavements and eventually increases the maintenance cost. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Towards the enhanced applicability of cold mix asphalt: : An experimental study focusing on surface free energies and the breaking and coalescence of bitumen emulsions

    Nyckelord :Bitumen; Cold Asphalt Mixtures; Minerals Aggregates; Surface Free Energy; Sorption; Contact Angle; Bitumen Emulsions; Breaking and Coalescence; Emulsifiers; Adhesion Promoters.; Bitumen; kallblandad asfalt; mineraler aggregat; fri ytenergi; sorption; kontaktvinkel; Bitumenemulsioner; brytning och koalescensen; emulgatorer; adhesionsegenskaper; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : The environmental, social and economic sustainability of our infrastructure network is clearly of paramount importance to the road-engineering sector as well to society at large. Sustainable road materials and reduced transport of those materials therefore play a significant role. LÄS MER
