Experimental Study of Non-Sintering Block for Reducing Surface Temperature Using Recycling Bottom Ash
Permeable pavement systems are suitable for a variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications because pavements such as water-retentive or water absorbing pavements are helpful to alleviate urban heat island phenomena by reducing pavement temperature, yet are confined to light duty and infrequent usage. And most of study for the permeable pavement is limited to asphalt pavement. Also, immense quantities of coal combustion by-products are produced every year, but only a small fraction of them are currently utilized, particularly bottom ash which is used in this study. So, in this study, it was intended to develop new permeable and water-absorbing pavement blocks to control pavement temperature and storm water runoff. And mechanical characteristics-compressive strength, porosity etc were carried out. Also, Experiments for thermal environment characteristics and pollution control were carried out in laboratory scale using modified pavement samples. Experimental results indicated that blocks with bottom ash were suited to standard and possessed excellent water-retentive and water purification ability.
