عنوان مقاله [English]
Due to the traffic structure in Iran and the excessive occurrence of loads to the surface of the pavement and then to the lower layers, the need to implement a resistant layer against to traffic loads in different weather conditions is quite obvious. In recent years, the upward trend in repair and maintenance costs for pavements has been increasing due to the increase in the amount and frequency of traffic loads on pavements, has led to an increase in the tendency to use modified bitumen and asphalt mixtures, especially in areas with high traffics. Many studies have been done to identify the appropriate additive for use to improve the behavior of bitumen and mixtures. The efficiency and effect of Nano Al2O3 as additive in rubber modified bitumen to improve its performance against rutting and fatigue destroies was evaluated in this study.In order to achieve the objectives of this study, firstly bitumen and 20% rubber powder with different percentages of Nano Al2O3 (0, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5%) was combined and subjected to physical and rheological tests. The results of this study show that improving the bitumen behavior in moderate and high tempratures can be led to decrease of fatigue and rutting failures. Evaluation on the results showed that using of 20% rubber powder and 1.5% Al2O3 has the best effects on the rheological behavior of bitumen. Also it’s predicted that using of this bitumen can improve the asphalt mixture strength against fatigue and rutting.
