The adhesively bonded joints behaviour under cyclic loading is not yet well understood due to its inherent complexity. Numerical approaches appear, therefore, as the easiest way to simulate such mechanical behaviour. In this work, double strap bonded joints with Carbon Fibres Reinforced Polymers (CFRP) and aluminium are numerically simulated and subjected to a cyclic loading history. In the numerical simulation, the Distinct Element Method (DEM) is used and it is assumed cohesive bi-linear bond-slip models with local damage of the interface. The evaluation of the bonded joints under cyclic loading is made by comparing the results with those simulated with a monotonic loading.

Micaelo, Rui, José Neves, Rui Lopes, and Alexandra Jesus. "A Different Perspective on the Production and Application of Warm Mix Asphalt Under Unfavorable Temperature Conditions." Transportation and Geotechniques: Materials, Sustainability and Climate. Eds. Manik Barman, Musharraf Zaman, and Jia-Ruey Chang. Cham: Springer International Publishing, 2019. 20-32. Abstract

Warm mix asphalt (WMA) is produced by a variety of technologies at lower temperatures that enable to gain important environmental and social benefits and, in consequence, to contribute to a more sustainable transportation infrastructure. The producer usually defines the temperatures used in WMA production. However, some references suggest the increase of temperature in order to allow a longer time to transport or to compact in cases of unfavourable weather conditions, mainly under low temperatures. The objective of this paper is to analyse the feasibility of producing WMA at the same temperatures of hot mix asphalt (HMA) guaranteeing an adequate compaction, and final performance in service. The paper describes a laboratory study to investigate the properties of a WMA using different additives and varying the mixing and compaction temperatures. The effect of production temperatures on the performance of the WMA was evaluated through binder drainage (production phase), volumetric properties (compaction phase), and resistance to permanent deformation (service phase). The paper also presents a numerical study on the time available for paving WMA under unfavourable climatic conditions. Results demonstrated that it is possible to produce WMA at high temperatures without problems of binder drainage, during transport, and of performance in service if adequate compaction is achieved. In fact, the production temperatures influenced the compaction phase. However, it is possible to increase the temperature without negatively affecting the required volumetric properties. The rut depth of the permanent deformation test was mostly influenced by the air-voids of the compacted WMA and the binder. From the numerical study, it was concluded that the time available for in situ compaction increased substantially when WMA was paved at higher temperature. However, in cases of low air temperature and thin layer, the increase of temperature may not be sufficient to obtain the desired level of density or air-voids.

There are many different ways to reduce the construction industry's impact on environment. The incorporation of waste in the fabrication of construction materials may be beneficial for both the waste management sector and the construction industry. The aim of this research was to investigate the use of three different waste materials (construction and demolition waste, brick powder and fly ash) as filler in asphalt mixtures. Limestone filler was used as reference material. The materials were characterized in terms of their geometrical, physical and chemical properties, and the interaction with bitumen was assessed with two mastic test methods using four different bitumens. The specific surface of waste materials shows a wide-ranging variation due to material specific shape and texture of particles. However, the Rigden voids and bitumen number tests adequately measure the stiffening effect of these materials. The delta ring and ball test results showed there is a good relation with the filler content when the results are affected by the bitumen type. The f/b ratio for a specific bitumen–filler combination can be determined from the maximum filler-to-bitumen ratio and the recommended stiffening increase. The mastics with these waste materials showed strong resistance to water damage.
