This master's thesis addresses a critical gap in the field of road construction by focusing on the limitations of Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene modified bitumen (SBS-MB), a widely-used binder. While SBS-MB offers superior performance, its long-term efficacy is compromised due to various aging processes. Existing rejuvenators are insufficient for...

The rejuvenation efficiency of aged bitumen is the main concern when developing rejuvenating agents. It is necessary to develop a method to assess the efficiency of rejuvenators using rheological parameters in the whole frequency region. To this end, the 2S2P1D micromechanics model is adopted to fit the entire G∗ master curves of various...

Bitumen is a key constitutive material in asphalt pavements. It binds together the rock scaffolding of a pavement. Bitumen provides asphalt pavement with flexibility and enables it to respond to traffic loading and return to its original condition after the loading, i.e. bitumen restores/repairs the damage. In Porous Asphalt (PA) or...

This study aims to systematically investigate the influence of rejuvenator type/dosage and the aging degree of bitumen on the rutting resistance, flow behavior, and elastic/creep potential of rejuvenated bitumen at high temperatures. The rutting parameter (G*/sinδ), rutting failure temperature (RFT) from Linear viscoelastic test (LVE), zero...

Bitumen rejuvenators are used to improve or restore the physical and mechanical performance of aged bitumen. Traditional bitumen rejuvenators are a product of crude oil. As crude oil production declines and the environmental and financial costs of crude oil increase, there is an urgent need to identify more environmentally sustainable bitumen...

This study aims to multiscale investigate the effects of rejuvenator type, temperature, and aging degree of bitumen on the diffusion behaviors of rejuvenators (bio-oil BO, engine-oil EO, naphthenic-oil NO, and aromatic-oil AO) in aged binders. The molecular dynamics (MD) simulation method is performed to detect the molecular-level diffusion...

The relaxation behavior affected by aging and rejuvenation plays a crucial role in its low-temperature cracking potential of bitumen. However, there are limited studies on the relaxation performance of rejuvenated bitumen under different rejuvenation conditions. This paper aims to propose critical indicators to assess the rejuvenation efficiency...

Because of the sustainability transition in the asphalt industry, it is increasingly popular to apply reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) instead of new asphalt. Then, less new material is needed and the amount of waste products is reduced. However, there are questions regarding the performance of asphalt mixtures with high RAP percentages,...

SBS modified bitumen is popularly utilized in road construction owing to its outstanding performance and competitive pricing. However, like normal bitumen, SBS modified bitumen will also be aged and causing asphalt pavement distress and the need for maintenance, resulting in a significant amount of wasted modified asphalt. Recycling waste...

Umm Al-Fahem is an Arab city in Israel, a city of social, geographic, historic, and political importance. Once a small village, Umm Al Fahem developed to be the third-largest Arab city in the state of Israel. It endured several hegemony stages of occupation and mandates, which shaped its socio-spatial systems through the years. The social and...

An in situ thermal reactivation of a multi-walled carbon-nanostructure (MWCNT) is feasible with improved performance in the O<sub>2</sub>-mediated styrene synthesis, also called oxidative dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene (EB). The actual catalyst is the coke deposited at the beginning of the reaction on the MWCNT, denoted as ODH-coke, i.e.,...

The molecular dynamics (MD) simulation method is proved as an efficient tool to explore the intermolecular interaction between rejuvenators and aged bitumen, but the simple “singlemolecule” model of rejuvenator would bring the inaccuracy to simulation outputs due to a huge difference with its realistic multi-component chrematistic. This study...
