Understanding how the physical properties of Nano-silica material affect the ultimate implementation of the asphalt binder is an essential study area that has been disregarded previously. The current investigation aims to determine whether or not it was possible to change the asphalt binder with Nano-silica (NS) depending on the qualities of the...
Article
The capabilities of geographical system and their spatial analysis is considered the most appropriate tools to enhance pavement management operations, with features such as graphical display of pavement condition. In Iraq, most of transportation agencies do not have a tool that is used as a database for road deteriorations, so there is a need for r...

Full-text available
Recently, Nanotechnology was being widely accepted in many fields due to its unique properties in enhancing the characteristics of many different kinds of materials, including asphalt binder. On the other hand, the usage of polymer nanocomposites for the production of durable asphalt mixtures has steadily replaced the use of polymer-modified binder...
Article
Full-text available
The production of asphalt pavements using Reclaim Asphalt Pavement (RAP) has achieved economic and environmental benefits. However, one of the main challenges when using untreated RAP in pavement construction is the hardness of the binder due to aging. The purpose of this study is to recycle and restore damaged asphalt using two types of regenerati...
Article
Recently, polymer -nanocomposites were used to manufacture durable asphalt mixtures to replace the polymer modified binder, because of the remarkable properties and unique features of nanomaterials compared to conventional materials, such as their wide surface area and small dimensions, making it possible to be utilized as an additive for asphalt p...
Article
The importance of sustainability in road construction using and renewing the Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) resulting from the reconstruction or periodic maintenance of roads is a challenge that requires the use of regenerative additions to restore the characteristics of the old bitumen in pure rap, in order to improve the performance properties...
Article
Full-text available
The major objective of this research is to assess the distress noise generated due to tire-pavement surface interaction for different modes and to evolve a noise prediction model for any manner taking into consideration the different factors impacting the distress noise generation. Seven flexible and four rigid pavement roads were chosen for the ca...

The pavement is one of the most important components infrastructures of the transport, and so, that has a major and direct effect on the general levels of transportation safety, as well to providing transport services with high quality for movement of people and goods. It is difficult to keep the road on same current specifications that was it sinc...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this study is to assess the pavement performance and to measure the pavement distress by implementing the sound noise using sound level meter with single probe at different constant speeds. Different site locations have been selected in Baghdad city. The sound level meter was used with the separate probe, RS-232 Sound level meter model:...

Full-text available
Asphalt binder, which is a by-product of petroleum distillation, is vastly consumed in pavement construction. However, petroleum is highly rare as a nonrenewable source resulting in the short-term supply of petroleum asphalt. The improper elimination of waste oils and plastics presents numerous environmental problems. This paper investigates the po...
Article
Full-text available
After many years in service, bituminous material in roads becomes aged and starts losing its properties. Aged bitumen becomes more brittle and causes a reduction in pavement strength with a decrease in the service life of pavement. The dumping activity of untreated waste oils into landfills or rivers causes negative effect towards an environmental...
Article
Full-text available
The objective of this study is to develop a model for evaluating tire/ pavement noise of the various in-service pavement sections in Baghdad city. The scope of this work includes field noise measurements for three selected conventional asphalt concrete roads which are (Senaha Street constructed in 2010), Palestine Street (resurfaced in 2012) and St...

Water in pavement systems can lead to moisture damage and loss of strength. This study considered the simulation of water effect on the pavement and presented as perception, two rain intensities were selected (50, 80) mm/min at duration of 120 and 60 minutes, respectively. The methodology of the study consisted of three stages, first is to collect...

The good drainage of water that which comes from different sources is one of the most important factors that must be taken into consideration when designing the subways and highways. In this research the work methodology include the software program SEEP/W routine of the GEOSLOPE 2012; which was used to simulate and analyze the vertical drainage of...

Increases in traffic volumes along urban roads leads to congestion. This study aims to evaluate the level of service (LOS) along Al-Masafi Street in Al-Dora. The study is comprised of two stages. First, data was collected by means of a field survey, with the data collection procedure including a count of the hourly traffic volume from 6:00 a.m. to...

Full-text available
Proper drainage is a very important consideration in the highway design. Inadequate drainage facilities can lead to premature deterioration of the pavement and the development of adverse safety conditions such as cracks and rut. It is common, therefore, for a sizable portion of highway construction budgets to be devoted to drainage facilities. In e...

The operation and maintenance of highway network in Iraq continuously worsens in spite of the efforts and expenditures to improve their serviceability. The main reasons of highways network failure are the fast appearance and increase in the intensity of deformation with the absence of periodical maintenance. The objective of this research is to est...

Proper drainage is a very important consideration in the highway design. Inadequate drainage facilities can lead to premature deterioration of the pavement and the development of adverse safety conditions such as cracks and rut. It is common, therefore, for a sizable portion of high-way construction budgets to be devoted to drainage facilities. In...
