Innovative Calculation Method of the Productivity of Vibrating Screens Used in Mineral Aggregates Sorting


In the process of preparing cement or asphalt concrete – frequently used in ways, roads and access road construction, it is necessary to sort out poly-dispersed granular mixtures from bilge deposits or quarries. The mechanical sieving performs the separation of the granules on dimensional sorts (the size of graded grains can be 1... 70 mm) by means of machines called screeners. In the case of vibrating screeners, the working body (the sieve) presents a vibratory movement that ensures a high productivity of the screening machine and a very good quality of the final products obtained. The article studies the productivity of the vibrating screen used in mineral aggregates sorting process obtained by different methods. In this regard, a pragmatic simplified formula called Pragma is proposed, a formula which was tested with good results in situ experiments done on a bi-mass vibrating screen in a pilot station.

Ecological Solutions Applied to Hot Mix Asphalt


Mixturile asfaltice sunt materiale compozite realizate din amestecuri de agregate naturale sau artificiale, filer și bitum, avȃnd la baza dozaje bine stabilite și o tehnologie adecvata astfel încȃt să rezulte un material rutier cât mai durabil posibil.

În urma studiilor efectuate pe plan internațional cât și pe plan național, s-a demostrat că se pot înlocui cu succes agregatele naturale cu zguri siderurgice sau de oțelărie, care prin prelucrare și sortare la dimensiuni necesare sunt cele mai adecvate din punct de vedere al proprietăților fizico-mecanice.

Mixturile asfaltice ecologice obținute prin înlocuirea agregatelor minerale cu zguri siderurgice vor intra în alcătuirea structurii rutiere, începand cu studiul pentru un strat de bază. Pentru evaluarea performanțelor mixturilor asfaltice în care agregatele naturale sunt înlocuite cu agregate artificiale, se va studia o mixtură asfaltică pentrul stratul de bază respectiv AB 31.5 pentru care se vor face încercări pentru trei rețete de mixturi asfaltice: mixtura asfaltică cu agregate minerale de carieră, mixtura asfaltică în care agregatele minerale vor fi înlocuite în proporție de 50 % cu zguri siderurgice și o mixtură asfaltică care va conține zguri siderurgice în proporție de 100%.

Încercările de laborator se vor face în cadrul Laboratorului de Drumuri din cadrul Facultății de Căi Ferate, Drumuri și Poduri, Universitatea Tehnică de Construcții București; rezultatele obținute vor fi detaliate sub forma de tabele și grafice, concluziile urmând a face aprecieri asupra performanțelor mixturilor asfaltice ecologice. Astfel, se vor stabili performanțele mixturilor asfaltice ecologice comparativ cu calitățile mixturilor asfaltice clasice, folosind următoarele încercări: determinarea densității aparente, a volumului de goluri, caracteristicilor Marshall și a modulului de rigiditate.

The use of expanded clay aggregate for the pretreatment of surface waters on the example of a tributary of Lake Klasztorne Górne in Strzelce Krajeńskie


The paper presents a proposal for the treatment of river water based on expanded clay (ceramsite). It is a lightweight mineral aggregate containing components relative to phosphorus adsorption (calcium, iron, manganese, aluminum). A pilot plant on a fractional technical scale was built on a nutrient rich (phosphorus up to 0.4 mg dm−3, nitrogen up to 10.0 mg dm−3), small (mean annual flow about 0.04 m3 s−1), natural watercourse (Młynówka River, a tributary of the Otok Channel, Noteć basin, the municipality of Strzelce Krajeńskie). The monitoring included quantitative and qualitative measurements of the water stream in 2014-2015. On the basis of the examinations, the calculated effectiveness of ceramsite filters in removing major contaminants from water was: for total nitrogen 5-6%, phosphorus 12-16%, and for suspensions 17-29%. The effectiveness of the treatment is highly influenced by hydraulic load, so this type application on a full-scale should occupy a sufficiently large volume. Taking into account simplicity of performance, ease of operation and low cost of construction and maintenance, such pretreatment plants based on expanded clay would seem to be a promising tool for the protection of surface waters in catchments of small rivers and streams.

Asphalt Mixtures with Limestone Aggregate for Base Layer


Asphalt mixtures are mixtures of mineral aggregates, filler, bitumen and eventually additives in proportions determined by recipe designed in the laboratory. Asphalt mixtures used as base course are bituminous concrete.

The natural aggregates are granular materials of mineral origin that come from natural or artificial crushing of the rocks. In our country there are the various rocks: eruptive or magmatic rocks, metamorphic rocks, sedimentary rocks.

To the category of sedimentary rocks belong limestone. Sedimentary rocks are characterized by relatively high porosity and a pronounced stratification, which causes mechanical resistance to be low and vary by direction of load. Due to the structure less dense and weaker mechanical resistance, the limestone are used less in heavy traffic pavement structures.

This paper presents an asphalt mixture recipe for the base layer developed in the Laboratory of Roads from Technical University of Civil Engineering Bucharest (TUCEB), using limestone aggregates extracted from Hoghiz Quarry. The paper contains laboratory test results to determine the recipe and laboratory findings leading to the schedule of product.
