Mechanical behavior of asphalt mixtures containing silica gels as warm additives

Abstract: This paper presents the results of a study of some compounds capable of absorbing water into their structure (silica gel), as potential foaming binders. Asphalt mixtures were manufactured at different manufacturing and compaction temperatures, using four different silica gels. Static and dynamic tests were carried out to determine their behavior in asphalt mixtures. The results were compared with those obtained using hot-mix asphalt and warm-mix asphalt manufactured with zeolite. The lab results showed a similar behavior of asphalt mixtures containing either silica gel or zeolite.
