    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, ...
  • 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
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The growing use of ultra-thin layers, called AUTL (Asphalt Ultra-Thin Layer), has raised the question of whether the currently used characterisation tests are equally applicable to mixes that are spread in such small ...
  • High-porosity alkali-activated binders based on glass and aluminium recycling industry waste 

    Maldonado Alameda, Alex; Mañosa Bover, Jofre; López Montero, Teresa; Catalán Parra, Roger; Chimenos Ribera, Josep Maria (2023-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    The potential as alkali-activated precursors of ceramic-stone-porcelain (CSP) and PAVAL, two residues derived from the optical separation of glass cullet and salt slag from secondary aluminium recycling, has been assessed. ...
  • Analysing the potential use of a low-grade magnesium carbonate by-product as a filler in hot asphalt mixtures 

    López Montero, Teresa; Maldonado Alameda, Alex; Mañosa Bover, Jofre; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Chimenos Ribera, Josep Maria (2022-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Climate change and natural resources depletion are leading society towards a more environmentally sustainable approach. In areas such as construction or civil engineering, waste and by-products valorisation could help in ...
  • Effects of the mineralogical composition and particle size distribution of ladle furnace slag as a cement/fine aggregate replacement in concrete 

    Araos Henríquez, Paulo Sebastián; Montaño, Thuesman; Valls del Barrio, Susanna; Barra Bizinotto, Marilda; Aponte Hernández, Diego Fernando (2023-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Ladle furnace slag (LFS) shows excellent potential for valorization. Despite this, landfills are typically its final destination, mainly because of technological barriers in its valorization process. This work examines the ...
  • Effect of the use of Marpol waste as a partial replacement of the binder for the manufacture of more sustainable bituminous mixtures 

    López Montero, Teresa; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée (2022-03)
