Novel Asphalt Materials for Smart Pavements

This issue is now closed for submissions.
More articles will be published in the near future.

Description

Smart pavements have become an emerging field of research in recent years. They are composed of advanced pavement materials, perceptive networks, information centers, communication networks, and energy systems, and possess the capabilities of active perception, automatic discrimination, self-adaptation, dynamic interaction, and continuous energy supply. Novel asphalt materials are important components of smart pavements and can extend service life, increase performance, reduce safety risks, and improve service quality.

Current research topics in this area include asphalt mixtures modified with phase change materials for automatic temperature control, self-healing of asphalt mixtures for autonomic repair, 3D printing of asphalt mixtures for fast repair, wireless intelligent diagnosis of pavement damage for health monitoring, conductive asphalt pavement for solar energy harvesting, wireless charging pavement for electric vehicles, etc.

This Special Issue encourages the submission of original research articles that seek to advance the development of asphalt materials for smart pavements through testing, characterization, or numerical simulation. Articles that include experimental studies and modelling techniques as well as review articles that explore and assess the various aspects of the properties of smart asphalt materials are welcomed.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Asphalt pavements for energy harvesting
  • Self-monitoring asphalt materials
  • Self-healing of asphalt materials
  • Anti-icing asphalt materials
  • Asphalt mixtures modified with phase change materials
  • 3D printing asphalt materials
  • Wireless charging asphalt pavement
  • Low heat absorption pavement
  • Characterization of smart asphalt materials
  • Numerical modelling of smart asphalt materials
