Abstract

This research explores the incentives for replacing steel fibers with aluminum fibers in fiber modified bituminous mixes. In this work the focus is on fiber modified bituminous mixes especially designed for induction heating. Inductive fibers are heated up because eddy currents are generated - according to Joule’s law - when alternating magnetic field is applied by electro-magnetic induction coil. Aluminum fiber-type particles are proposed as an alternative solution for developing corrosion resistant and lightweight bituminous mixes capable to be induced by electro-magnetic fields. In another publication (Pavlatos et al., Inductive bituminous mortar with steel and aluminum fibers, Advances in Materials and Pavement Performance Prediction, Submitted, 2018), a finite element three-dimensional model is developed in order to determine the effective electrical conductivity of steel and aluminum fiber modified bituminous mortar, as well as to show the potential utilization of alternative particles for developing multi-functional paving materials with improved properties.
