  • Soil stabilization using waste paper fly ash: precautions for its correct use 

    Baloochi, Hani; Aponte Hernández, Diego Fernando; Barra Bizinotto, Marilda (2020-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper deals with the valorization of waste paper fly ash (WPFA) as a binder for soil stabilization. The mineralogical characterization shows the presence of free lime, as well as some non-reactive and cementitious ...
  • Impactos ambientales de mezclas bituminosas recicladas en caliente, semicalientes y templadas

    Article
    Open Access
    For some years, reducing bituminous mix temperatures has been a common trend among asphalt producers because it is a very effective way to reduce energy consumption and atmospheric emissions of asphalt plants, along with ...
  • Transport of moisture and chlorides into sprayed concrete 

    Aponte Hernández, Diego Fernando; Barra Bizinotto, Marilda; Valls del Barrio, Susanna; Fernández Carrasco, Lucía (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This contribution is a study of the durability and transport properties of sprayed concrete used in an actual construction site. It considers whether concrete spraying can generate different porosities as the thickness of ...
