waste glass glass aggregates glasphalt mixtures Nano-Fe2O3 suspension
A glass crusher was developed to improve the waste glass crushing process. The waste glass was recycled, crushed and sieved to different particle sizes as glass aggregates, and the surface of glass aggregates was treated by nano-Fe2O3 suspension to improve the anti-striping property. The glasphalt mixture made by partly replacing mineral aggregates with glass aggregates was designed and evaluated. The sizes of glass aggregates were selected to be 2.36 and 4.75 mm, and the optimum concentration of nano-Fe2O3 suspension was determined to be 10%. The optimum asphalt content(OAC)was determined by the Marshall method and the glass aggregate content. The influence of the glass aggregate content on the technical properties of glasphalt mixtures were analyzed by the rutting test, three-point bending test, freeze-thaw splitting test and skid resistance test. The results show that the optimal content of glass aggregates and OAC are recommended to be 15% and 4.4%, respectively. These environmentally-friendly glasphalt mixtures can solve the problem of environmental pollution caused by waste glass, as well as reducing the cost of pavement materials and construction.
