Selection of ethylene-vinyl-acetate properties for modified bitumen with enhanced end-performance

Bitumen modification with ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), in a wide range temperatures (between − 30 and 100 °C), has been studied as a function of polymer concentration and EVA characteristics (vinyl acetate (VA) content and melt flow index (MFI)).

An empirical constitutive model for complex glass-forming liquids using bitumen as a model material

While extensive research efforts have been devoted to understand the dynamics of chemically and structurally simple glass-forming liquids (SGFLs), the viscoelasticity of chemically and structurally complex glass-forming liquids (CGFLs) has …

Stress decomposition analysis in hard and soft sphere suspensions: double peaks in the elastic stress of hard sphere suspensions and its characteristic and structural origin

Brownian dynamics simulations under large amplitude oscillatory shear flow at an intermediate volume fraction in both hard and soft sphere systems have been carried out. Elastic and viscous stresses for the two systems are calculated by using the …

Slow flows of yield stress fluids: yielding liquids or flowing solids?

Yield stress fluids (YSF) exhibit strongly non-linear rheological characteristics. As a consequence, they develop original flow features (as compared to simple fluids) under various boundary conditions. This paper reviews and analyzes the …

Entanglement properties of carboxymethyl cellulose and related polysaccharides

Entanglement network of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) was characterized based on the dynamic viscoelasticity of the concentrated solutions in an ionic liquid. According to the concentration dependence of the molecular weight between entanglements …
