Study on Application of PCM in Asphalt Mixture

Abstract:

Article Preview

The application of Phase Change Material (PCM) to asphalt mixture can lighten the temperature-dependent disease of the asphalt pavement and improve the usability as well as extend the operating life of it. We choose agreeable PCM with comprehensive consideration to the technical requirement of its application in the construction industry and the characteristic of asphalt mixture. Through simulating temperature experiment, we make a conclusion that incorporate the carrier accompanied PCM into asphalt mixture can reduce the increasing rate and cooling rate of the mixture, which shows that PCM can put into use of adjusting the asphalt mixture operating temperature, softening the negative influence of ambient temperature variation on asphalt mixture.
