Influence of aged bituminous binder on the properties of polymer modified bitumens
Pecha, Marek ; Koudelka, Tomáš (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with problematics of polymer modified binders specially designed for production of asphalt mixtures containing Reclaimed Asphalt. These polymer modified binders are referred to in the literature as PMB RC (polymer modified bitumen for recycling). The first part of the thesis is focused on obtaining different types of PMB RC from various european producers. These binders were subsequently tested using empirical tests of asphalt binders for the classification purposes according to ČSN EN 14023. In the next part of the thesis the influence of the addition of aged asphalt binder on the properties of individual PMB RC was assessed. Mixing of binders was done to simulate the production of asphalt mixture in a mixing plant, where the binder of the Reclaimed Asphalt and the freshly added binder are mixed together. An assessment of the effect of the aged binder on PMB RC behavior was also carried out using conventional asphalt binder tests.
Influence of the temperature on the preparing of asphalt mixtures with higher amount of RAP
Škrobáček, Petr ; Koudelka, Tomáš (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
This bachelor thesis is focused on the preparation of the reclaimed asphalt pavement for production of asphalt mixtures. In the thesis there is investigated the effect of the temperature of preparation the reclaimed asphalt pavement on the characteristic of the bitumen content. In the theoretical part there is described bitumen as such and reclaimed asphalt pavement. In the practical part there is described the preparation of the material for laboratory tests. The next step is the extraction and distillation of bitumen. These bitumens are tested according to depredescribed tests: ‘Determination of needle penetration (ČSN EN 1426)’, ‘The softening point (ČSN EN 1427)’ and ‘Dynamic shear rheometer’. In the last section of this bachelor thesis there is a comparison of the individual properties of the rendered bitumen of the asphalt mixtures of reclaimed asphalt pavement, with the aim of evaluating temperatures of preheating and degradation of the bitumen on the final characteristic of the asphalt mixtures witch higher quantity reclaimed asphalt pavement. The measured values of the temperature for preparation of reclaimed asphalt pavement shows that the temperature of the asphalt mixture before production has a significant effect on the characteristics of the bitumen, which is included in the reclaimed asphalt pavement. There is evident the difference between specimen of the asphalt mixture of reclaimed asphalt pavement and the reclaimed asphalt pavement. It is visible only from the bottom layer too.
Cold recycling of flexible pavements
Řehulka, Martin ; Koudelka, Tomáš (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
The bachelor´s thesis is focused on recycling of the flexible pavements in general, namely cold recycling. This modern technology was introduced in the Czech Republic after 1989. The first half of the thesis describes theoretically various types of recycling of flexible pavements, where the greatest attention is paid to this technology. The second part describes the section of the modernization D1 motorway where this cold recycling was applied. The technological process, including visual documentation and control tests, is documented.
Functional tests on mixtures of the test section with asphalt concrete and high amount of RAP
Kučerová, Marcela ; Zajíček, Jan (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
The diploma thesis is focused on the testing of asphalt mixtures of asphalt concrete containing reclaimed asphalt and laying of the test section. The theoretical part deals with the use of reclaimed asphalt in hot asphalt mixtures, namely the specifics of rejuvenating agents, aging and asphalt mixture. Further more information on the functional properties of asphalt mixtures and the influence of reclaimed asphalt on them is given. The practical part describes testing of mixtures of ACO 11+ and ACO 11+ with 50% reclaimed asphalt and tests on asphalt binders. In order to compare the proposed mixtures, the low thermal properties of ČSN EN 12697-46 and the stiffness modules according to ČSN EN 12697-26. In the last part of the diploma thesis the results of the measured values were compared with each other in order to determine of asfphalt recovery. From the overall test results, it can be seen that the effect of the rejuvenating agent was positive. However, the desired degree of rejuvenation has not been achieved after production.
Properties of asphalt mixtures of SMA-type with RAP
Acuna Subia, Luis Carlos ; Hrbek, Kamil (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
The aim of the diploma thesis is to verify and compare the properties of bituminous stone mastic asphalt, namely SMA 11S with modified PMB 45 / 80-55 asphalt binder or 50/70 road bitumen binder with rubber granulate. Comparison of properties is performed using functional tests. The thesis is divided into the theoretical and practical part. The theoretical part deals with the familiarization with the use of the SMA mixture, the selected concepts concerning recycling of non-leveled roads are described and described. Attention is paid especially to the recycling of roads in the Czech Republic with an emphasis on hot recycling on the incinerator, which allows increased dosing of Reclaimed Asphalt into asphalt mixtures. In the practical part, the results of the functional tests of the SMA 11S mixture, which have been taken from the test section, are processed and evaluated.
Research in the field of construction elements and design of concrete pavements
Grošek, Jiří ; Birnbaumová, Marie (referee) ; Vébr,, Ludvík (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
The presented dissertation is focused on research in the field of dowels and design of concrete pavements using the finite element method. The theory part describes the history and the currently used techniques in the world and in the Czech Republic. The practice part of the dissertation contains a description of design methods, diagnostics of concrete pavements by using FWD and a description of laboratory tests on beams with inserted dowels. The results of measurements and modelling are verified on real operating conditions on testing fields. Based on the dissertation results, the amendment of the Czech standard ČSN 73 6123-1 regarding the position of dowels were proposed and approved. In addition, methodological guidelines of the Ministry of Transport regarding the measurements of the dowels and tie bars position and diagnostic by FWD was approved. The conclusion of the work summarizes and emphasizes the results of the dissertation.

Compactibility of the materials for subgrade
Kolbábek, Jiří ; Varaus, Michal (referee) ; Stehlík, Dušan (advisor)
This thesis is focused on differences between compaction of fine-grained and coarse-grained soils. It presents selected compaction methods and it describes their principles and implementation procedures. In the practical part is performed classification of both types of soils and then samples are compacted by three methods.
