In cold regions, the production of Cement-Bitumen Treated Materials (CBTM) represents an issue in terms of annual time available for production. The objective of this research is to study the influence of different combinations of production temperatures for mixing, compacting and curing (developed in two steps) on the mechanical properties of CBTM produced with two sources of bitumen emulsion. Workability, compactability, indirect strength and other additional tests were involved in the analysis. Findings highlighted the critical effect of transportation and compaction temperatures on CBTM workability. Moreover, the emulsion source significantly affects the mixture strength when produced at low temperatures.

Abstract

In cold regions, the production of Cement-Bitumen Treated Materials (CBTM) represents an issue in terms of annual time available for production. The objective of this research is to study the influence of different combinations of production temperatures for mixing, compacting and curing (developed in two steps) on the mechanical properties of CBTM produced with two sources of bitumen emulsion. Workability, compactability, indirect strength and other additional tests were involved in the analysis. Findings highlighted the critical effect of transportation and compaction temperatures on CBTM workability. Moreover, the emulsion source significantly affects the mixture strength when produced at low temperatures.
