Adhesion of bituminous binders to aggregate
Vlk, Petr ; Hýzl, Petr (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
In 2005 the revised European standard 12697-11:2005 [1] was introduced offering a choice of three different methods. The static method described in part B has some similarities with the replaced Swiss standard for the determination of the affinity between bitumen and aggregates [2] and Czech standard for adhesions of asfalt binder to aggregates ČSN 73 6161 [3]. The result of this study is to compare the static method described in the [3] and a draft changes by Swiss research project [4] with the current revision of the European Standard 12697-11: 2005.
Recycling of asphalt mixtures for low-traffic roads
Musil, Lukáš ; Dašek, Ondřej (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
This bachelor's thesis deals with 100% pure recycling by method of hot mix asphalt recycling using a rejuvenating additive (so-called rejuvenator) for the device development in cooperation with an external company. The aim of bachelor's thesis is to determine the amount of dosing of the rejuvenator and to determine the compaction temperature for the processing the asphalt mixture. On the basis of determining the properties of the reclaimed asphalt pavement, by means of tests in the laboratory. According to the determined properties of the reclaimed asphalt pavement, the percentage of rejuvenator required to achieve the required properties of the asphalt mixture for subsequent processing and laying on the road.
Design of asphalt mixtures with the orientation on the water sensitivity
Kalfeřt, Martin ; Dašek, Ondřej (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
In these thesis aggregate and bitumen for the design of asphalt mixtures were described and tested. Further the asphalt mixture was tested with various tests and with the test for the water sensitivity.
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.
Recycling of asphalt mixtures - variability of RAP - parameters
Tuháček, Martin ; Koudelka, Tomáš (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
The bachelor thesis is focused on RAP material (Reclaimed asphalt pavement), particularly on its characteristics and usage while producing hot mix asphalt at plant. The theoretical part thoroughly describes different fields of application of RAP, these include both the hot and cold recycling. The practical part, on the other hand, essentially covers the problem of using the maximum feasible amount of RAP in hot mix asphalt mixtures; mechanical and psychical properties of a binder and aggregate grading curves are evaluated. On the basis of the testing results, the classification of RAP is undertaken. Moreover, the variability of RAP characteristics is assessed and compared within two various plants. Therefore, the maximum amount of RAP added is based on the very deviation of each characteristic. Representative samples were of two sizes – 0/11 and 0/22.
Design of asphalt mixtures with the use of higher amount of RAP
Pavličík, Petr ; Matoušek, David (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
In the introduction of the Master’s thesis describes for obtaining and processing of reclaimed asphlalt. Major point of the thesis is design of asphalt mixtures with use of higher amount of RAP for asphalt binder course. Asphalt mixtures were designed with contents of 0%, 30%, 50% and 70% of RAP. On each asphalt mixtures were compared parameters set out by functional tests – resistence to permanent deformation and resistence to water.
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.
Analysis of the laboratory test "Crack propagation by semi-circular bending"
Petříček, Václav ; Dašek, Ondřej (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
The objective of this bachelor thesis is to realize the basic laboratory tests of aggregate and asphalt binder, thereafter, to desing the Czech asphalt mixture ACO 11+ and the German asphalt mixture AC 11 DS and to compare them after testing for the resistence againts crack propagation.
Prediction of road surface skid resistance in laboratory
Nekulová, Pavla ; Dašek, Ondřej (referee) ; Stryk, Josef (referee) ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
The dissertation deals with a testing method described in ČSN EN 12697-49 (also known as Wehner/Schulze), which aims to predict the evolution of skid resistance properties of road surfaces using laboratory testing. Given that the required quality of skid resistance on road surfaces must be met not only for new constructions but also at the end of the warranty period, contractors of transportation structures have started focusing on the lifespan of road skid resistance properties. Although the Wehner/Schulze test was introduced in the 1960s, increased attention has been given to it only in the last fifteen years. The fundamental prerequisite for utilizing this testing method is linking the measurement results in the laboratory to values measured by dynamic measuring devices, commonly used for monitoring the skid resistance of road surfaces. This involves establishing a relationship between laboratory simulation of traffic and actual traffic load. The final step involves employing the Wehner/Schulze testing method to design special asphalt mixtures with optimal longevity of skid resistance properties. In this case, it entails an asphalt mixture with a combination of aggregates with different PSV values to utilize local aggregates with low PSV values, supplemented with a small quantity of high-quality imported aggregates with high PSV values.
New trends in the field of stone mastic asphalts
Pfeiferová, Magdaléna ; Varaus, Michal (advisor)
The work consists of two parts. The first part is focused on the determination of an anti-skid properties of the test section on Vídenská street. The anti-skid properties will be measured using a pendulum tester and macrotexture will be set at the same time. Microtexture will be measured using a volumetric patch technique. In the second part we will try to gain an initial experience with design and testing of a low noise stone mastic asphalt. We will set basic characteristics and at the same time compare with a standard stone mastic asphalt. For the comparison two various bituminous binders are used. The water sensitivity, resistance against rutting and stiffness moduli are compared.
