Abstract [en]

It is well known that the use of by-products (recycled), instead of natural materials help toward more environmentally friendly roads by easing landfill pressures and reducing demand of extraction. Correspondingly, this paper deals with evaluating the mechanical performance of new developed hot mix asphalt (HMA) mixturesmade of alternative materials (up to 98% industrial wastematerials). The paper sheds light on the long-term performance of the new developed mixtures using the accelerated load testing facilities available at VTI (the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute). The materials, methods and results given in this article are part of ALTERPAVE European -project findings. In this project, different types of industrial by-products, namely, reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP), foundry sand and steel slag) have been used in different fractions to find thecomposition of the best asphalt mixtures made mainly of industrial wastes that can substitute the asphalt mixtures made of natural aggregates. Using the circular road simulator (CRS), twenty- eight asphalt slabs were prepared using natural and industrial by-products and tested under different testing conditions. The CRS test has been used to assess the surface deterioration, wear and the changes in macrotextures of the tested asphalt slabs under wheel loading in dry or wet conditions and under different testing temperatures to simulate summer and winter seasons. In addition, studless and studded tires have been used to traffic the asphalt slabs during the CRS testing to simulate the current roads conditions in different European countries. The test results demonstrated that by controlling the homogeneity of recycled material and by using rejuvenators of suitable quality and quantity, it is possible to obtain paving mixtures with high content of recycled materials that can satisfactory substitute theconventional asphalt mixtures made of natural materials.

Abstract [en]

Sweden has a wide network of gravel roads. When the water table levels rise during the freeze-thaw and wet seasons, the bearing capacity of the roads will decrease and rut depths increase. The road will suffer a small deterioration every time a vehicle travel over it. Therefore, it has been decided to investigate the long-term performance of a Swedish designed gravel road using an accelerated pavement testing facility.

A trial gravel road was constructed and exposed to various levels of ground water table which simulate the weather changes in Sweden. The structure of the trial gravel road consisted of 15 cm (base and surface layer), 20 cm sub-base layer and 260 cm subgrade soil. The trial road was tested using the Heavy Vehicle Simulator (HVS) and the vertical surface deformations and the vertical dynamic deformations were measured by means of laser profile measurement and εMU coils respectively. At the end of 85 000 HVS passes, the tested road suffered from serious deformations as discussed in details in this paper. Furthermore, a transverse trench section was excavated at the end of HVS trafficking in order to investigate the possible mechanism contributing to the tested road failure.
