Slitage av och partikelemissioner från betongbeläggning

Wear of and particle emission from concrete pavements

This report aims to study wear and the formation of inhalable particles from concrete coating, concrete coating with mixed in titanium dioxide (TiOmix) and from a reference asphalt (SMA16) under controlled conditions in the VTI road simulator (PVM). All coatings used the same rock material, a granite with ball mill value 6. Wear tests showed that the TiOmix wore most, due to the poor strength properties caused in manufacturing the slabs. The asphalt was initially more worn than the concrete, but after about 250 000 rounds in the PVM it was at the same wear rate as the concrete. Particle formation was higher for the concrete that that of the asphalt. PM10 from concrete contained substantially more calcium than PM10 from asphalt, indicating that the cement in the concrete is an important particle source. Ultrafine particles emitted, after initial high emissions at any speed increase, to a lesser extent from the concrete and TiOmix than from asphalt. The concentrations of PAHs are lower in samples from concrete coating, which may indicate that a part of the PAHs are derived from bitumen. However, the difference may also be due to different PAH content from the tires used.
