Lighting the roads and so increasing the visibility is very important to avoid accidents. In this study, an acrylic and UV-react phosphorous paint (PP) is added to the hot mix asphalt for improving the visibility of the pavement. PP has been added to the mixture while blending binder with the mineral aggregates, based on six different ratios (15%,...

Aggregates obtained from natural rocks have been used as one of the base materials for road pavements. Obtaining the aggregates is very costly and extraction is difficult. Therefore, the reuse of existing roads as base materials is becoming meaningful and the use of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) materials reduces the need for virgin aggregates....
Conference Paper
California Bearing Ratio (CBR) values are not always easily accessible, especially when the highway is already constructed and therefore, CBR values obtained from laboratory test results may need to be utilized. However, the laboratory test results do not provide the same results as the field tests due to external factors. To utilize the CBR values...

Asphalt concrete is composed primarily of aggregate and asphalt binder. By volume, a typical Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) mixture is about 85% aggregate, 10% asphalt binder, and 5% air voids. Bitumen is very important as a binder material in asphalt concrete. However, the cost of the bitumen is relatively high. For this reason, highway professionals are l...

One of the important parameters in ensuring traffic safety is road visibility. Road visibility depends on the geometric design of the road, lighting conditions, as well as the climatic conditions in the area where the road passes. Visibility depends on meteorological parameters such as temperature, humidity, wind speed, pressure, fog, precipitation...

The Poisson distribution is a commonly used probability density function. This distribution is also used to model the traffic flow. However, since it is obtained by factorial calculation, it is not possible to use this distribution, which belongs to the discontinuous probability family. In this study, instead of factorial calculation, the gamma fun...

Engine oil is compulsory for vehicle operations and should be replaced with new one in specific periods of time or travel distance. Therefore, lots of waste engine oil (WEO) which are very hazardous to the environment is produced every year. Treatment of this waste is very difficult because of the heavy metals in it. In this paper, the usability of...

Hot mix asphalt (HMA) is very common as a highway construction material. Although investment costs are lower than other pavements, HMA needs maintenance and rehabilitation (M&R) more often because of environmental conditions. The time needed for M&R can be extended by using fibers in the mixture. In this study, utility of sisal (Agave Sisalana) pla...

Serviceability was found to be influenced by longitudinal and transverse profiles as well as the extent of cracking andpatching. The amount of weight to assign to each element in the determination of the overall serviceability is a matter ofsubjective opinion. International roughness index of highway pavements has been estimated by least squares an...

Accidents cause vital loss and property damage. The possibility of an accident when the surface is under wet conditions is an indisputable fact. In addition, drivers slow down when the pavement is wet and this affects the flow of traffic. Accidents occur on highways in wet weather either because of hydroplaning or reduced skid resistance. This pape...

Many methods used for traffic signal timing are useless if the conditions in the intersection are oversaturated. With an increase in the number of vehicles, the saturation degree approaches or exceeds the limit value at intersections. This creates a scenario where many signal timing methods become overwhelmed. In this paper, the elimination pairing...
