Bituminous Binders and Mixes (Rilem Report) by L. Francken

By L. Francken

The purpose of the reports offered during this document is the implementation of rational options and checking out systems for the layout and manufacture of bituminous fabrics for functions in pavement development. sensible try out strategies are steered for binder overview, combine layout and function evaluate of bituminous fabrics. the 3 major themes addressed are binder checking out, combine layout and mechanical trying out of combos. every one is tested via interlaboratory exams and there's a literary evaluate of current practices and strategies for the construction of polymer changed binders, combination layout and the mechanical homes of combinations.

This publication describes intimately the vicissitudes of Jewish lifestyles within the japanese Mediterranean zone, exhibiting how Jews have been tormented by the political, non secular, and fiscal turmoil of the days. Sharf deals a hyperlink among the better-known historical past of the Jews of the Roman Empire and that of the Greek and Turkish groups of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

Material matters: architecture and material practice

Bringing jointly texts and paintings through theorists and practitioners who're making fabric vital to their paintings, this e-book displays the various parts of inquiry that are increasing present fabric discourse. targeting the cultural, political, monetary, technological and highbrow forces which form fabric practices in structure, the individuals draw on disciplines starting from philosophy, historical past and pedagogy to artwork perform and electronic and low-tech fabrication.

Example text

2. In addition to its currently used testing conditions of temperatures and frequencies, each laboratory was asked to use a set of 15 reference conditions resulting from the combination of: - 3 frequencies (Fr=1, 10 and 100Hz), - 5 temperatures (T=−25, 0, 25, 50 and 75°C). 3. Participators were invited to give a comprehensive description of the experimental procedure used (including calibration, specimen preparation, interpretation, etc…). 5. 3 The binders to be tested The binders to be tested were selected among those which were used in 1985 to build experimental road sections of the RN5 road between Charleroi and Couvin (Francken, 1990).

Standardised ageing test methods simulate the ageing that occurs during the production of the pavement. To simulate long-term ageing in service, the PAV test (Appendix 1) has been developed in SHRP. The test is performed after RTFOT or TFOT ageing. The chemistry of bitumen is very complex and is even more complex after the admixture of polymer. No specifications including requirements on the chemical composition of bitumen or PMB have been found in the literature. It is doubtful whether this type of requirement should be included at all in specifications, at least not for plain bitumen.
