    This paper discusses the analysis of uniaxial tension–compression cyclic strain sweep test results for the characterisation of bituminous materials. The test results of one bitumen and two mastics, at different oxidative ...
  • The effect of temperature, rest periods and ageing on the response of bituminous materials in fatigue tests: considerations and proposals on analytical dimensioning model 

    Pérez Jiménez, Félix Edmundo; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Botella Nieto, Ramón; López Montero, Teresa; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2022-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    One of the basic assumptions of analytical dimensioning models of asphalt pavements is failure due to fatigue cracking of the bituminous layers. Furthermore, it is considered that the damaging effects of different traffic ...
  • A new proposal to assess shear fatigue resistance of asphalt pavement interfaces 

    Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo; Ortiz Ripoll, Jorge; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; Botella Nieto, Ramón; Pérez Jiménez, Félix Edmundo; López Montero, Teresa (2021-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    The degree of adherence between two bituminous layers can be assessed from shear tests carried out at constant displacement speed, which allow the shear strength and stiffness of the interface to be obtained, being usual ...
  • Evaluation of the rejuvenation of asphalt by means of oil-saturated porous aggregates 

    Casado Barrasa, Raquel; López Montero, Teresa; Castro Fresno, Daniel; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo (2022-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Road degradation is an increasing problem for assets managers. Roads deteriorate mainly due to the combination of different factors, such as temperature, climate and traffic loads. This causes the asphalt to age and, ...

  • 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 

    Ortiz Ripoll, Jorge; Crisén Grau, Xavier; Martínez Reguero, Adriana Haydée; Miró Recasens, José Rodrigo (2020-01)
    Article
