In the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Kufa, a discussion of the high diploma project was conducted, entitled: “The properties of hot asphalt mixture containing sugar industry residues as fillers” for the student, Renin Abdul Sharif from the Department of Civil Engineering, for roads and airports.
The assistant professor, Dr. Abbas Talib Mohsen, who supervises the project, indicated that the object of this study is to evaluate the effect of adding sugar industry waste on the properties of the asphalt mixture and compare it with local and international specifications. Where this research was carried out the use of sugar industry waste as a filler in the asphalt mixture.
The researcher indicated to prepare two modified sets of asphalt concrete mixtures, the first with pure asphalt (the standard mixture) and the second is the industrial waste materials (modified mixture), and some laboratory tests were conducted on both the standard and modified mixtures such as checking stability, flow, Marshall hardening, tensile resistance Indirect, resistive compression resistance, and long-term mixture resistance. Indicating that the results of these tests had an improvement in the mixture properties, that is, an increase in Marshall stability, indirect tensile strength, and long-term resistance of the mixture that led to the results of asphalt mixtures with good and high durability properties used in road construction.
