Study on Light–Colored Technology of Highway Tunnel Pavement
This paper used the method of spread the broken glass and light-colored stone into the asphalt mixture, then rolling to compact, to increase the brightness of the asphalt pavement in highway tunnel. Through a series of tests, we have studied the performance of the light-colored asphalt pavement, including high temperature stability, anti-sliding performance, impermeability, bond performance and the light-colored performance. Experimental studies have shown that the anti-sliding performance, high temperature stability will be lower slightly compared to ordinary asphalt concrete. Its impermeability has increased. The light-colored performance is better. At the same time, after the analysis of the experimental results we know that the improvement of light-colored performance is not only effected by the dosage of the materials, but also has a great relationship with the particle size. In general, the smaller the particle size of the materials joined, the more apparent the light-colored performance improved.
