Investigation on the Properties of Asphalt Mixtures Containing Antifreeze Fillers

To investigate the properties of antifreeze asphalt mixtures (AFAC), the dense-graded and gap-graded asphalt mixtures, AC-13 and SMA-13, containing 2, 4, 5, 6, and 4% by weight and 5, 6, 7, and 8% by weight antifreeze filler, respectively, were used in this paper. In the experiments, Marshall, rutting, bending beam, and immersion Marshall tests were used to study the engineering performances of AFAC. In addition, a conductivity test was carried out to evaluate the salt releasing law under static state condition. Results show that the properties of AFAC are affected by the gradation composition and content of antifreeze filler. It is suggested that the content of antifreeze filler is 3∼6% by weight according to the Marshall test. The composition type of asphalt mixture is an important factor in AFAC because the durability of SMA-13 is worse than that of AC-13. Moreover, the salt releasing process is divided into three steps based on the conductivity test.
