Abstract

A slow rate of curing and the long time necessary to achieve full strength has led cold asphalt mixes (CAM) to be considered poorer in comparison to hot mix asphalt over the last decades. This piece of research aimed to develop a new fast-curing and environmentally friendly cold asphalt concrete for binder courses mixture (CACB). It has the same gradation as that of traditional hot asphalt concrete mixtures but incorporates a binary blended cementitious filler (BBCF) containing waste, high calcium fly ash (HCFA) and fluid catalytic cracking catalyst residue (FC3R) activated by a waste alkaline NaOH solution. The research concludes that incorporating an alkali activated binary blended cementitious filler (ABBCF) with CACB significantly improves the mechanical properties and water susceptibility. In addition, the high performance ABBCF mixture has a substantial lower thermal sensitivity than traditional hot asphalt concrete binder course mixtures. SEM analysis revealed that the main crystallisation had taken place at an early stage of the new ABBCF. More significantly, the new CACB mixture has a comparable stiffness modulus with the traditional asphalt concrete binder course after a very short curing time (less than one day).
