    A readily available and sustainable biomass resource that could be used as a bi-tumen extender or modifier is the biopolymer lignin. Nevertheless, there isn’tmuch agreement regarding how well lignin-based bituminous mixtures ...
  • Effect of steel slag on compaction times of asphalt mixtures based on prediction of cooling curves 

    Benavides Alcívar, Julio Darío; Rangel, Rafael L.; Franci, Alessandro; Aponte Hernández, Diego Fernando (2024-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    This study investigates the thermal properties of asphalt mixtures incorporating steel slag as a potential substitute of natural aggregates in hot mix asphalt, precisely the BBTM11B type. The thermal properties were analysed ...

    Article
    Open Access
    Asphalt is an essential material in the construction of asphalt pavements. Due to its high demand and dependence on petroleum, it is crucial to use greener materials that can fully or partially replace petroleum-based ...
  • Enhancing circular business model implementation in pulp and paper industry (PPI): a phase-based implementation guide to waste valorisation strategies 

    Sopelana, Amaia; Oleaga, Asier; Cepriá, Juan José; Fifer, Karmen; Paiva, Helena; Ríos-Davila, Francisco-Javier; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; Cañas, Antonio (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2023-12-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Innovation in the circular economy (CE) and the deployment of effective circular business models (CBM) have attracted significant attention in times of growing natural resource scarcity. Despite this widespread interest, ...
  • Photoluminescent applications for urban pavements 

    Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; López Montero, Teresa; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Puig Figuera, Ricardo (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2023-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Photoluminescent materials used on street and road pavements could absorb solar energy during the day and emit it at night, which will save energy and improve visibility with a consequent improvement in road safety. The ...
  • Characterising the bonding between asphalt ultra-thin layers applying a new cyclic shear test 

    López Montero, Teresa; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Subarroca, Mar; Bobis Rojas, Alfredo (2023-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Bonding between layers is a critical aspect in the durability and performance of asphalt pavements. The life of the pavement can be significantly reduced due to poor bonding between bituminous mix layers. For this reason, ...

    Steel slag has been proposed to replace fine fractions in hot mix asphalts (HMA) because this material has physical-mechanical properties that make it suitable for wearing courses. However, one of the main barriers to the ...
  • Cold mix asphalt with polymeric stone for low traffic volume roads 

    Rivera, Julián; Battista, Nicolás; Oviedo, Adrián; Rebollo Izquierdo, Óscar; Zapata Ferrero, Ignacio; Fensel, Enrique; Delbono, Luis; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée (2023-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    The use of polymer-based household waste in the wearing course of flexible pavements has been analysed, either as an asphalt bitumen modifier or as a dry additive. However, there are not enough records in which this waste ...
  • Analysis of different testing techniques for evaluating the adhesion of asphalt ultra-thin layers (AUTL) 

    Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; Pérez Jiménez, Félix Edmundo; Moreno Navarro, Fernando; del Sol Sánchez, Miguel; Rubio Gámez, María del Carmen; Carnerero, Jorge; Sánchez Pallarés, María; López Marco, José Ramón; Pérez Báguena, Lorena; Máñez, Ausias (2023-08)
    Article
